Work on the second stage of Burnie’s new $20 million Cultural Precinct has started.

In a post on its Facebook page, the council says stage two involves a re-imagining of the internal courtyard and establishing a glazed roof, the installation of a lift for an all access pass to the Town Hall balcony and completion of the Northern extension.

Burnie Arts and Function Centre executive manager Mark Viner says anyone visiting the centre will now experience part of the new and spectacular Long Room, which that includes some of the fresh permanent displays featuring Burnie Stories, drawn from objects and images in the cuty’s extensive art and museum collections.

Mt Viner says while stage two is being developed, the new foyer and re-vamped Town Hall Theatre is up and running for 2024.
