We are delighted to have two of the City of Newcastle's most iconic performance venues for the 2023 Australian National Band Championships.

Opened in 1929, Newcastle City Hall is one of Newcastle's most unique and prestigious venues. 


The Civic Theatre Newcastle has been in the business of entertainment for over 90 years. It is Newcastle's most popular and prestigious venue for arts and culture and has helped shape the dynamic cultural identity of the city.



On Easter Monday, our Solos and Party Championship Events move to the Hunter School of Performing Arts (HSPA) in Broadmeadow, just 4 km west of the Newcastle City Hall. The HSPA features the Hunter Theatre and several specialist music classrooms, a band room and other performing arts spaces that will host the many Solo events. The HSPA is a short walk from the Broadmeadow train station and is at 109 Lambton St, Broadmeadow, NSW.
