When are the CAG venues available for hire?

Can I hold my wedding ceremony at the Gallery?
Yes. We have had a range of ceremonies in the Gallery, from the grand events on the marble staircase to more intimate affairs in the Philip Carter Family Auditorium.

Can I hold my 18th birthday party, 21st or grad ball at the Gallery?
No. The Gallery is not really an appropriate venue for the above events.

Can I self-cater my event?
Unfortunately, no. The Gallery venues are unique and therefore require caterers who understand the environment. You can choose from any of our preferred caterers

Yes you can. All aspects of service, chilling and empties disposal need to be pre-arranged with your preferred caterer prior to the event.
