Northern Festival Centre

Overview

The Northern Festival Centre is a fully equipped multi-purpose arts centre, and can accommodate a diverse range of conferences, performing arts, film screenings, seminars and product launches. Within the Centre are the Keith Michell Theatre, The Ballroom and meeting rooms (Barbara Welch Room and Council Room).

Port Pirie proudly announces itself as ‘The City of Friendly People’. Located on the eastern shore of the Spencer Gulf, Port Pirie is South Australia’s second largest port. It is an industry based city, whose economy is driven by the huge silver, lead and zinc smelters which process the raw ore brought from Broken Hill, and the port which provides transportation for both the metal and rural industries surrounding the city.

In addition to being one of South Australia’s most important industrial and commercial centres, it has a rich and historical base, with a number of heritage listed buildings and monuments throughout the city. The region offers visitors a myriad of activities and attractions in a district steeped in history and culture.

Port Pirie is 229 km North of Adelaide and has a population of 13,500 and a theatre base of 20,000 (population within 100km).
