About Us

Wyndham Cultural Centre is located at 177 Watton Street, Werribee and is proudly owned and managed by Wyndham City Council.

It consists of the 477 seat Tattersall's Theatre, with full Fly Tower & Orchestra Pit, The CBD Library, Art Gallery & Cafe.

Formerly Centenary hall, the building was a common meeting place for community groups to gather and participate in functions such as Deb Balls, presentations, awards ceremonies and social activities such as dances and wedding celebrations. The most gruesome use of the hall was to hold immunisations which many residents will remember not so fondly!

Building works began in 1999 and the new Wyndham Cultural Centre was opened in May 2001.

There are several original features remaining of the former Centenary Hall including the western supporting wall, the original staircase that leads to the gallery and the wooden floor in the library, which was formally the supper room. The most distinguishing feature is the 8m fly tower, which transformed the old Centenary hall stage area into a fully functional theatre.

The foyer has many interesting plaques, which pay homage to the supporters of the venue in both its heyday as Centenary Hall and as the Wyndham Cultural Centre. There is also a time capsule buried in the floor of the foyer and will be opened in 2051. It contains pictures and memorabilia of the former Centenary Hall and the original concept plans for the current building.
