Welcome to Wellesley Wellington

The Wellesley was built in 1937, in the traditional Art Deco style of that period, the large undivided auditorium seats 385 people on two levels, 235 downstairs in the "STALLS" and 150 upstairs in the "CIRCLE" which has raked stadium seating and provides a little more comfort and leg-room, the circle is restricted to persons over the age of 18, unless part of a family group.

Many improvements have been carried out over the years, including the installation of the latest Digital Projector, Sound System and of course 3D!

Our Venue also has full stage facilities, and often includes Live Stage Shows, including the highly acclaimed WAA Pantomime and the WAA Op Soc Musical Productions.

We have an induction loop system in the Circle area.
