Venue Hire

The Hall recently benefitted from a multi-million dollar upgrade to transform it into a cultural hub that supports multiple events and activities. The transformation has seen significant improvements that include the venue now being fully accessible, to the addition of a new multipurpose performance space, rear deck and enhanced audio and visual equipment.

Main Hall

Venue capacity, depending on the type of event, is up to 375 seated (plus 10 house seats that can be released once volunteer/staff requirements are clarified) and 500 standing in the main hall.

Half Hall

The Half Hall configuration, with a heavy black curtain drawn midway down the room, is used for cinema and performances requiring less seating than in Main Hall configuration. The raked seating contains 185 chairs. Hirers can sell up to 207 (or more, subject to confirmation by the Venue Coordinator) by placing additional rows of seating on the floor.

Studio BMH

The multipurpose space - Studio BMH - can accommodate more intimate performances of up to 80 seated in a variety of configurations and 150 standing.


The Bellingen Memorial Hall is managed by Council with support from some amazing volunteers.
