From tickets to Melbourne’s hottest summer shows to gift vouchers, seat dedications, a grand 12 days of Christmas celebration and Saturday Christmas Markets brimming with handcrafted goods from local artisans, Arts Centre Melbourne presents a range of festive gifts set to rival Santa’s stash. In addition to treating loved ones to an unforgettable experience, performing arts lovers can give the gift of the arts through The First Call Fund.

With a sizzling summer program on offer including the Australian premiere of five-time Tony Award-winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time; the internationally acclaimed circus, music and magic extravaganza The Unbelievables; the Golden Age of Hollywood musical Dream Lover; exhilarating theatrical explosion RIOT and an array of family fun adventures such as Emily Brown and the Thing; The 78-Storey Treehouse and A Simple Space, a gift voucher is a perfect present for theatre lovers young and young at heart.

Make this festive season count with a very special gift – an Arts Centre Melbourne seat dedication. Through a tax-deductible donation of $2,000, the dedication is inscribed on a plaque and affixed to a seat in one of the much-loved theatres for 25 years. All funds raised through the donation go directly towards creating more life-changing performing arts experiences for future generations to enjoy.

Another wonderful festive offering is an Arts Centre Melbourne Membership, which provides exclusive access to the Members’ Lounge and Dining Room for pre-performance drinks and dining, priority lanes at foyer bars and special member events as well as savings on parking, tickets and drinks and dining at Café Vic, The Barre, Bombini Buzz and Cento.

Make a wish come true this festive season for a complete stranger through The First Call Fund, an initiative that closes the gap for Victorians who miss out on the performing arts due to social disadvantage, distance or other circumstances. The First Call Fund directly supports school and community groups to visit Arts Centre Melbourne, enabling them to see a live performance or participate in a creative arts learning workshop. Donations from $50 enable two people to attend a performance.

The merriment continues each Saturday from 18 November through to Saturday 2 December on the Arts Centre Melbourne Lawn with the Saturday Christmas Market. Find the perfect treasure with unique and handcrafted goods ranging from arts and crafts to freshly made delicacies from local artisans available for purchase.

To celebrate the gifting season, Arts Centre Melbourne is giving away a sack full of tickets to some of our biggest shows over the summer holidays. Follow ArtsCentreMelbourne on Facebook and look out for a giveaway each morning for the first twelve days of December.
