24 June: COVID-19 Advice:
West Gippsland Arts Centre has a continuing commitment to the safety and peace of mind of all its audiences, performers, crew and staff, and will be following all current government advice with respect to its procedures and scheduled performances.
In the event that prevailing COVID-19 restrictions prevent a performance going ahead as planned the performance will be either cancelled or postponed and rescheduled.
Ticket holders will be contacted directly and offered the option of moving their booking to an alternative date (if rescheduled) with the same seating allocation they originally booked, OR a full refund.
Information regarding our COVIDSafe venue practice and ticketing policy is regularly updated on our website

We'd like to thank you all for your kind support and understanding during the temporary closure of West Gippsland Arts Centre.
As you can imagine, for the arts industry, the current climate has had a huge impact and on artists, performers, technicians, theatre companies, musicians and more. We all need the arts in our lives - more now than ever! Art binds us together and helps us to share our stories and bring us experiences we might never have imagined, and we all know that it will help us make it through tough times!
We are working to bring you some special arts content so you can stay connected with each other and with West Gippsland Arts Centre, and most importantly, stay healthy in mind and spirit!
So, we ask you to keep your eyes on our social media platforms and on our website as we bring you some innovative, interactive and inventive content to keep us all engaged and entertained. We're making lemonade! Come and enjoy it with us... stay tuned!

02 June 2020 - ALBERT AND SMITH RESTAURANT HAS RE-OPENED!

They are back to normal trading times - Lunch: Tuesday to Saturday 12:00pm -2:30pm, Dinner: Thursday to Saturday 6:00pm - 8:30pm. Bookings are highly recommended as social distancing measures will be in place and the table seating is set up to accommodate this. Phone 5624 2559

Access to Albert and Smith is via the door from the outside deck area.
Many of our 2020 Season shows are being sold on third party wesbsites like ViaGoGo at extremely inflated prices. As you can see from this image, at the top we have selected two full price tickets for the show 'Salute to the ANZACs' from ViaGoGo's site. The price for EACH ticket is $86 BEFORE fees and charges! In the bottom of the image, you can see that TWO tickets via our official website and sales portal has a TOTAL cost of $50 for full price tickets ($25 each).
ViaGoGo's total is $172 before fees and charges. Our total is $50 in total. That's a difference of $122! This is for one of our Daylight Entertainment shows.
The inflated cost for more expensive shows is, as you can imagine, insanely higher than this on these third-party ticketing sites.
We strongly urge you to share this information and ONLY buy tickets for shows at WGAC's website unless we directly inform you on our site (some presenters of non-theatre events occasionally, but seldomly, use legitimate third party ticketing sites.)
Remember: only buy from us. We cannot in any way guarantee the legitimacy of any tickets purchased from these or any other sites other than our own. In almost all cases, they will not be honoured.
Remeber to SHARE this information - the same rule applies to almost all entertainment venues. Only buy from legitimate sites and check the link is legitimate when you search for shows on Google etc.
When you buy your tickets online you don't have to print them at home... you can show the tickets attached to your purchase confirmation email when you come to a show! Save time, paper and ink. It's so much easier! Remember to save the attachment on your phone and have it ready for our team when you arrive.
Remember, always buy your tickets for shows at WGAC from ourwebsite at www.wgac.com.au - and not from third pary websites!
