Head to 'the Judy' to enjoy a unique blend of cabaret, circus, dance, music and contemporary performance. Welcome to the Judith Wright Centre. We’re home to a unique blend of cabaret, circus, dance, music and contemporary performance, right in the heart of Fortitude Valley’s creative precinct.
We’re also the base for internationally recognised arts companies such as Circa, Expressions Dance Company and the Institute of Modern Art, as well as a number of creative industry tenants. Local artists are supported to develop and present works that connect with audiences locally, nationally and internationally.
Affectionately known as ’the Judy’, the experience is made complete with Arthouse Coffee by day, Slingshot Bar+Gallery by night and Rogue Spice Canteen + Bar for lunch and dinner.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Centre soon!
See you #atthejudy
