Ballina Council says that the Lennox Head Cultural Centre is fast becoming the entertainment and social hub for the Northern Rivers, attracting a variety of performances and events to Lennox Head.

Now the Centre is the home for a bigger and better stage to attract more events and performances to the centre.

The new twelve by five-metre stage has been completed by Council’s team of skilled tradespeople and provides a professional, industry-standard performance space to meet the growing needs of the community.

The North Coast Dance Festival’s Kerren Kernaghan says it’s such a great addition and benefit to the community. ‘This will attract a variety of performances to the Lennox Head Cultural Centre. To have a local facility with such a large stage will mean so much for dancers. They work and train so hard.

‘The new stage means they will be able to shine on stage and show their love of dance.’

Community Facilities Coordinator, Roberta O’Brien, says that there is no other venue quite like it in the area that can accommodate small and large groups under the one roof.

‘It provides flexibility of spaces, a place for the community to gather and has the facilities to hold everything from live music, performance and film to gala dinners.
