Thebarton Town Hall $7.9m redevelopment



At the March 6 Council meeting, a draft Revitalisation and Expansion project and business plan.  See the plan here: Thebarton Theatre 6 March 2018.

The Thebarton Town Hall in celebrating its 90th birthday in June this year.  The plan focuses on refurbishment of the existing State Heritage  building and expanding the building with a two storey addition, containing further event space and plaza area.

The Thebarton Town Hall was opened on June 11 1928, by the Town of Thebarton at a cost of 30,000 pounds.  It was renamed Thebarton Theatre in 1981 and has since built a following as a local favourite for many local and international bands, comedy events and more.

The proposal has a cost of $7.9m, with the request for Council funding of $2.9m, State Government $4m, and the current lessee Weslo $1m.  The Council and State funding have not yet been funded.

Tell me what you think – do you like the plan, have any feedback or suggestions?  Should Council commit a large sum of money to this redevelopment? Any other ideas?- leave a comment on this Facebook post, send me an email (, or give me a call.
