The Wheeler Centre is open

Tonight the Wheeler Centre offically launches its programme with our first ever event at Melbourne’s Town Hall, A Gala Night of Storytelling.

While this event has sold out, you will be able to watch it all online here next week, so there is no need to miss out.

Then from Monday the Wheeler Centre’s 200-seat performance space will open its doors, where we look forward to welcoming you to some of the many other events on at the Centre over the next months.

Our first ever event in the Wheeler Centre building will take place on Monday with the inaugural Debut Mondays event, focusing on new writers.

Happening every fortnight, come and have a glass of wine and discover the best new writers in town.

Under the spotlight for our kick-off event are Bob Franklin’s collection of literary horror stories, Under Stones, Andrew McDonald’s young adult romp The Greatest Blogger in the World, Sofie Laguna’s Miles Franklin-longlisted One Foot Wrong and Our Girls, Madeleine Hamilton’s exploration of 40s and 50s Australian pinup girls.

February also sees the launch our other regular events, including The Writer’s Mix Tape on February 23rd with Lally Katz talking to 3RRRs Richard Watts.

And there’s the first Reading on Vocation, focusing on architects, with Ramona Koval on February 24th and and our first Lunchbox/Soapbox with Peter Singer on the 25th.
