Hall Hire

Glenbrook School of Arts Hall

Conveniently located with easy access to public transport is the Glenbrook School of Arts hall which adjoins the Glenbrook Cinema. It is suitable for meetings, classes, art and craft exhibitions and similar quiet functions.

The hall features a piano, domestic kitchen and air-conditioning and is in close proximity to beautiful Glenbrook Park. 

It must be appreciated that the hall is immediately next to a theatre/cinema and noise can transfer from the theatre to the hall and vice versa, so the hall is only suitable for meetings, classes, art and craft exhibitions and similar quiet functions.
