Fringe Common Rooms at Trades Hall is more than just a venue for hire – it’s a home for vibrant and groundbreaking independent arts, music and events. All year round Common Rooms carries the torch for Melbourne Fringe’s deep commitment to rebellion, inclusivity and creativity (and ripper dance floors, obvz).
From gigs and live music to comedy, spoken word, theatre, cabaret, parties and meet-ups – whatever you’re up to, this is fully accessible common ground for everyone.
The Old Ballroom: a performance space & bar that holds up to 170 patrons standing or 146 seated theatre-style. Perfect for your one-off performance (think comedy, cabaret, spoken word), dance party, book launch, film screening or panel event.
The Annexe: a second, intimate saloon-style space that holds up to 70 people and is ideal for workshops, meetings and rehearsals.
Porque no los dos? For most events in the Old Ballroom, the Annexe can be used as a break-out area or backstage green room at no extra cost.
With a great bar, friendly staff and oodles of state of the art tech equipment we're looking forward to being the home of your next event!
Full tech specs and more detailed venue information available here.
