EDUCATION – LEARN MORE

Welcome to our 2017 Arts Education Season - we are extremely proud and excited by the program we can offer you.

Inside this program you will discover unique performances, workshops and events designed to enhance learning across a range of subject areas through engagement with quality arts experiences.

Yes this is a program for students of drama, dance and performance. But we are also a place where, in 2017, students of science, design and technology can learn about robotics; where students of history can experience the stories of refugees who have recently journeyed to this country and where students of music of all ages, can experience the best in concerts with the great James Morrison and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

As part of the University of Sydney, our mission is to investigate how we can all LEARN MORE through the performing arts. The Seymour Centre's 2017 Arts-Education program is filled with great opportunities for your primary and high school students to do just this.

I invite you to read on, to be inspired and bring your students to the Seymour Centre in 2017.

The venue

The Seymour Centre is a performing arts centre, housing four performance venues, cafe, bars, expansive foyers and a large leafy courtyard.

We present a diverse range of the best of contemporary performing arts; we host major festivals, present large scale performances and partner small and emerging companies to develop and present innovative independent performance.

As well as a fantastic performance space, the Seymour Centre is an ideal venue for exhibitions, launches, conferences and functions.

Access

A lift is located in the main foyer area with access to all foyers and theatres within the centre. Toilets are fully accessible and disabled seating is available in all venues. Access parking and drop off is located on Maze Crescent at the Darlington Campus, the University of Sydney.

For patrons with limited mobility, it is recommended that when booking your tickets you inform our Box Office staff of your requirements in advance to ensure you are seated appropriately. If you have any questions about accessibility, please call the Box Office on 02 9351 7940.

Parking

Located conveniently at the Broadway end of the city, the Seymour is close to Central and Redfern Stations, with great bus and rail links, ample parking and plenty of nearby facilities. Pedestrian access is from City Road directly opposite Victoria Park.

If you are coming by school coach or mini bus, the best drop-off point is Maze Crescent, behind the Seymour, accessible either from City Road via Butlin Avenue. There is a drop-off point on City Road about 100 metres up from the Seymour Centre after the bus stop, but coaches must not wait in this area.

Food/Drink

The Seymour Centre is adjacent to Victoria Park – a perfect spot for a pre or post show picnic. Alternatively, the Seymour has a large shaded courtyard and expansive foyers where students can enjoy their lunch.
Drinks and snacks are available for purchase from one hour prior to each performance and pre-arranged packed lunches are also available. Please contact our Catering Manager on (02) 9351 7920.
Older students might like to make their way to the Broadway Shopping Centre food court which is just a short walk a way.
