In the 1960s an invitation from Robin and Patricia Boyd to Walsh Street was one of the most coveted in Melbourne. For leading members of the arts and cultural community it was a special place to meet, discuss and dine.
We are delighted to offer Walsh Street to the public as a unique venue for hire. Suiting formal and casual occasions Walsh Street’s layout can accommodate many different configurations including dinners, cocktail parties, product launches, workshops or simply be used as a space to enjoy drinks and good company.
Venue hire availability is limited and requests must be individually assessed and approved by the Foundation. Special parameters are in place to help us care for you, your guests and our heritage listed residence. Our catering partners Cookes Food, Handmade Events and Urban Foodies, who are trained in Walsh Street safety and conservation protocols, will work with you to deliver memorable events.
Please contact us to receive further information on availability, capacity limits and pricing.
Income from Walsh Street venue hire supports the delivery of our public program and the care and conservation of Walsh Street. Alternatively you may wish to become a Foundation Corporate Partner or Boyd Circle member which unlocks access to Walsh Street.
