A grant of $20,460 from the NSW government will allow for the redevelopment of the Byron Bay Community Centre theatre, Ballina MP Don Page said on Friday.
The theatre, which has hosted top national and international acts, will receive new professional stage lighting. Panels for the generation of solar power will also be installed.
‘This is great news for the Byron Theatre, which is a significant asset to Byron Bay,’ Mr Page said.
‘I have been to a number of productions at this theatre and it provides an intimate space for plays, concerts and films,’ he said.
‘The $20,460 for the redevelopment of the Byron Theatre comes from the NSW Arts Funding Program, which supports capital infrastructure projects that promote arts and cultural activities.
‘Access to cultural activities is important in regional NSW and I am pleased the NSW government is committed to delivering artistic opportunities in the Ballina electorate,’ Mr Page said.
