What's on at the Convent

 

A range of events are held at Sacred Spaces, including our annual Fine Music Concert Series - you will find the details on this page. The acoustic brilliance, beauty and grandeur of our Sisters' Chapel and other rooms in the Convent befit the quality of musicianship that our visiting professional artists bring to our Concert Series. Our loyal audience comes from a wide regional area to enjoy them. Our concerts are topped off by a delicious Convent-made afternoon tea. Scroll further down this page for ticket prices and booking and access arrangements. We also host other concerts & events that are organised by other groups.
