Event Reviews 

"The Eternity Playhouse is a very special venue. It’s historic charm, coupled with modern state of the art facilities and incredible architecture, makes for a wonderful event space. The staff is professional and incredibly helpful. They really understood our brief and what we were trying to achieve and brought our vision to life through both their understanding of event logistics, as well as their passion for the theatre and ability to help us create an impactful attendee experience. This is not something you would get from many other venues." I can’t recommend them highly enough. 

- Lauren Hayward, General Manager & Client Accounts. Forum Group Events

"The Eternity Playhouse proved to be a perfect venue for our recent event. Right from the start, Glenn and his staff showed nothing but enthusiasm, friendliness and professionalism. Their communication and attention to detail made the entire process effortless. I eagerly recommend Eternity Playhouse and look forward to working with them again." 

- Mathew Smeal National Communications Manager. Medecins Sans Frontieres Australia

"Eternity Playhouse was the perfect setting for a bespoke client dinner we recently hosted on the main performance stage. The in-house team were extremely professional and experienced, and collaborated seamlessly with the chef and catering to make the event a huge success. The heritage listed features, lighting and production contributed to the experience and set the benchmark high for future events." 

- Andrea Prieto -Senior Marketing Coordinator. Ernst & Young

"My team of 20 and I had a great time bringing out our inner actor at the Eternity Playhouse, where we held a Theatre Sports team building day. The Theatre Auditorium was intimate enough that the team could work closely together, while being grand enough to give the day a real wow factor! Thanks again to the team at Eternity Playhouse for a smooth booking process, and a great space to hold a training day with a difference."

- Rob Larisch, Events and Marketing Manager, Sydney. Diabetes NSW

"We had a great experience planning our event at Eternity Playhouse. The team was professional, efficient and very helpful in every aspect of planning the event. We would definitely work with Darlinghurst Theatre Company again. Eternity Playhouse itself is a beautiful theatre and was perfect for staging an amazing show.
