Ainslie Reception Hall

Connecting the two heritage wings of Ainslie Arts Centre is the Reception Hall, a large, open performance space.

Designed as the Ainslie Public School in 1927, the Reception Hall features high ceilings with exposed beams. A separate foyer is ideal for event registration, or pre and post event drinks, with the Hall opening out onto an internal courtyard. This bright and flexible space is suitable for performance, receptions, meetings, workshops, conferences and more.
