Have seen a lot of shows here and have always found it very inviting and comfortable. Viewing has never been an issue from any seat I’ve had. If your show has an intermission and the queue for the bar looks too long, there is another...More

Even though we were disappointed that David Hobson was ill, his replacements more than made up for it. What a wonderful concert they put on. Well done to the producer for arranging this at such short notice. An excellent venue for sound.

The nibbles were quite good, my only criticism was the noisy cooler in the bar area which made it hard to hear the speaker.

This venue provides a number of comfortable, inviting spaces. This enables a variety of cultural offerings to be experienced by local, and visiting, performers, speakers, patrons. It is conveniently located on the outskirts of the shopping precinct with plenty of parking nearby.

Absolutely wonderful venue for a stage show. After seeing Phantom of the Opera can say Frankston Arts Centre is as good as city venues - just a small stage and the props are not as good, but the singing was amazing.

Visited for a concert and was impressed with the set-up and expertise of the staff. Great venue and with all you will require for a night out. The auditorium has great sound and the seats allow excellent stage view. Recommended.
