“The Concourse Theatre, in fact the entire complex, its facilities and management are superb. From Century Venues, our Australian Presenters and the first rate Willoughby Symphony who have played for us, in this exclusive Sydney season, this has been a tremendously successful and enjoyable experience for the whole Company. We would love to return!”
Wayne Eagling, Artistic Director, English National Ballet

“Willoughby City Council are to be congratulated for their vision and enterprise. The Concourse Performing Arts Centre, with its state of the art facilities, purpose built concert hall and theatre, rehearsal rooms, surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants in the heart of Chatswood is an extraordinary addition to the cultural landscape of Sydney. Sydney Festival is delighted to have once again been working in partnership with Century Venues. Our two productions performed at The Concourse have been sell-out successes.”
Lindy Hume, Festival Director, Sydney Festival 2012

“Willoughby City’s Concourse Arts Centre is an important addition to the Sydney scene and the national theatrical circuit. All the venues are high-end, practical and beautifully designed. It’s a great advantage that the venues are being run by a robust and entrepreneurial manager such as Century Venues. We’d love to be back at Chatswood”
