Perth Theatre Trust


The Perth Theatre Trust manages a number of Western Australia's most significant performance venues including His Majesty’s Theatre, the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, Subiaco Arts Centre, Albany Entertainment Centre and the Perth Cultural Centre public realm. These venues host a number of local, national and international performances and hold the State's premiere performing arts companies.

The Perth Cultural Centre (PCC) is where the arts, culture, knowledge and community come together and is one of Perth’s key public spaces. Each year it hosts the Perth Festival, FringeWorld Festival and Awesome Festival for Bright Young Things.

Located between the central business district and the bustling entertainment precinct of Northbridge, the PCC is home to the State's most significant cultural and learning institutions, including: Art Gallery of Western Australia ; WA Museum Boola Bardip; State Library of Western Australia; State Records Office; Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts; Blue Room Theatre; State Theatre Centre of Western Australia; North Metropolitan TAFE (Perth campus).

Following the establishment of a State Government Taskforce, a new masterplan is in development, ensuring that the PCC becomes the cultural heart of Western Australia.


Perth Theatre Trust's mission is to offer wide-ranging arts experiences in well-managed venues.

Reason for joining GCDN

On 1 July 2018, the Perth Theatre Trust took over responsibility for the management and activation of the Perth Cultural Centre from another Government agency. The Cultural Centre also houses the most significant cultural institutions in the State.
While Perth Theatre Trust has extensive experience working with theatre venues, the Perth Cultural Centre is the first public space that the Trust has taken responsibility for.
