Event Details

The Brighton Town Hall is a Classical Revival building and the historical and visual focus of the precinct. You'll also be able to view Bayside Gallery's latest exhibition Pets are people too

The Council Chambers were complete in 1961 and designed by Kevin Knight. The interior of the circular foyer (now removed to make way for the Brighton Library), Council Chamber, and two circular meeting rooms were designed by Grant Featherston.  Featherston was one of Australia’s most significant modernist designers.
