Council is committed to opening a Pride Centre at Newtown Town Hall.

We are running two open days which are an opportunity to hear about the project, tour the premise, and consider possibilities for the community and how the spaces could be used by one or more organisations.

  • In 2018 Council investigated hosting a Pride Centre in the Inner West and consulted with the community.
  • In September 2020 Council resolved to make the Newtown Town Hall available for Pride Centre operations.
  • In October 2020 Expression of Interest applications for a panel were opened.
  • In May 2021 Council received a report on the outcomes of an Expressions of Interest (EOI) process for an operator of the planned Pride Centre. No operator was identified from the initial EOI process.

87% of respondents to the Pride Centre survey said it was very or extremely important to have a Pride Centre in the Inner West

Newtown Town Hall was identified as a prime location for the Pride Centre that aligned with the community vision.

The full engagement outcomes report can be found here.
