The Australian Poetry Hall of Fame

The Australian Poetry Hall of Fame in Guyra is in the Arcadia Theatre built in 1929.

We have a totally authentic hall and the acoustic properties of the building are next to none being the preferred venue for the Armidale Chamber Choir.

Our hall is perfect for band performance and practice, book readings, celebrations, choir practice, comedy, concerts, cultural performances, Eisteddfod, live music (we love country music and island music), parties, poetry readings, recitals, film screenings, shows, and theatre.

Seating 120 in the dress circle and 280 in the downstairs auditorium. There is also a workshop room and a café.

Guyra is centrally located 30 minutes from Armidale and 40 minutes from Glen Innes on the beautiful Northern Tablelands in New England.
