Bendigo’s Ulumbarra Theatre celebrated its first birthday on the weekend. Ulumbarra which means ‘gather together’ in the Dja Dja Wurrung language has lived up to its name with over 117,500 people through its doors to over 270 performances, functions, conferences and events. City of Greater Bendigo Capital Venues and Events Manager, David Lloyd, said Ulumbarra’s first year has been a great success and its reputation continues to grow at a local and national level. “It’s simply been a fantastic investment in our city and if anyone hasn’t already taken the opportunity to visit Ulumbarra, make 2016 the year to take in a performance, attend an event or go on a tour of this unique building. There are some fabulous shows coming up and you won’t be disappointed,” Mr Lloyd said.
