The much-loved Ararat Town Hall is a highly utilised community venue and regional tourist destination. The Town Hall holds pride of place in the community, with both the building and its subsequent service to the Ararat community representing significant local civic and cultural heritage. Its high-profile location serves as a centre-piece of Ararat’s rural municipality and is a well-known landmark and cultural destination across the region.
The Town Hall’s performing arts program primarily focuses on supporting the local community, presenting an annual program of quality touring works from a range of disciplines from circus, to theatre to fine music. The program is further complimented by seasons by local ensembles including the Ararat Music Comedy Society, Ararat Theatre Company, the Ararat Eisteddfod and annual concerts by local dance schools.
