Cell Block Theatre, National Art School – The atmospheric Cell Block Theatre at the National Art School is hidden behind the convict-hewn sandstone walls surrounding the Art School.

In constructing the Cell Block the internal walls and floors of the original Darlinghurst Women’s Gaol were removed to reveal ten-metre high sandstone walls leaving behind an open cathedral-like space. The impression of the old cells still lingers with traces of the curved stone staircases climbing 3 stories high, the narrow barred windows, the rough sandstone edges that mark the cells and the solid iron doorway.

The adjacent courtyard allows your guests to gather for pre drinks under the overhanging greenery and the National Art School also offers a Gallery Lawn space within the precinct which is ideal for outside wedding ceremonies. Venue hire includes some on site parking and AV.
