The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre is located in the city of Sydney. Situated in the heart of Penrith, the Performing Arts Centre is located within close proximity to the Council Chambers, Penrith City Library and Westfield Shopping Centre.

It was opened in 1990 with a community celebration and a Gala Concert performance by Dame Joan Sutherland accompanied by Richard Bonynge. The Centre initially housed the Penrith Conservatorium of Music, the Richard Bonynge Concert Hall and the Allan Mullins Studio but in 2005 it was upgraded to include the Q Theatre, extended Conservatorium facilities and a large atrium foyer.

Today The Joan presents the best in music, theatre and dance; with world class performances from artists acclaimed nationally and internationally on the same stages that host community festivals, shows and events. The Penrith Conservatorium of Music provides quality music education to students of all ages and abilities, and the Q provides theatre training to young people aged 5 – 18, and people with a disability, as well as making innovative and community-focused performances, building on the substantial legacy of the Q Theatre Company.

Boasting facilities to accommodate from 1 to 580 people, the Joan is an ideal venue for your next conference or event, with access to professional staff, catering and conference equipment. Located within close proximity to the council chambers, penrith city library and Westfield shopping centre and fully refurbished in 2005, the Joan boasts a 580 seat concert hall, 378 seat drama theatre, 90 seat performance studio, 2 Foyers, 2 Bars and 27 Meeting Rooms — it’s the perfect venue.

The Joan is ideal with three large-scale conference venues for up to 660 people. Follow-up with an afternoon or evening function in our beautifully appointed Bars and Foyers.
