It has been 21 years since the Frankston Arts Centre, formerly known as the Frankston Cultural Centre, opened on May 20, 1995, by then Prime Minister Paul Keating.

May is the centre’s official birthday month and visitors and community members are invited to help celebrate this momentous event. A celebration cocktail is available to mark the occasion as well as a memorabillia wall with a special area for the public to leave birthday messages. The Frankston Arts Centre’s construction was a much anticipated process and took 20 years to plan. The project included the library, toy library and an underground car park, and cost approximately $18.5 million, funded primarily by Frankston Council, with additional funding from federal and state governments. The community also worked hard to raise a further $1 million, allowing vision to become reality.

Over the past 21 years, the centre has welcomed many wonderful Australian and international performers as well as a plethora of renowned theatrical companies to the stage. Aside from this, many high-calibre local theatre companies including PLOS Musical Productions, Panorama Theatre and Frankston Music Society have performed annually at the centre. Treading the same boards as the professionals, many first-time performers from local schools and community groups have taken their first tentative steps into the spotlight on the stage, some of whom have gone on to forge strong careers in the entertainment industry.

So, after 21 years, thousands of events and millions of patrons, there are so many stories to celebrate. Visit the centre or visit the Facebook page and enjoy a trip down memory lane.
