Hello! I’m Beth. I have worked in the entertainment industry since 1999, and in Ballarat since 2010. In Ballarat, I have produced a regular comedy club, mobile cinema, various major events and creative projects.
In 2021, I am bringing together a group of incredible people to build a new performing arts venue in Ballarat.
During the downtime of 2020, I spent time working on the plans for a new performing arts venue in Ballarat. It will be a medium sized, flexible space presenting a diverse range of shows and events including theatre, music, comedy and cabaret. A big focus of the venue and organisation will be providing jobs and development opportunities for the local performing arts community.
Spark Theatre is now an incorporated association and we’ll be presenting some exciting shows and events in 2021, as we search for a building to call home.
Since 2013, the George Hotel has played host to my monthly comedy nights. With big name acts and a laid-back atmosphere, it’s a much loved mainstay of the Ballarat entertainment scene.

A mobile, indoor/outdoor cinema. Three seasons were run between 2016 and 2017, showing retro and family friendly movies with fake grass, beanbags and popcorn. Where will Movie Garden pop-up next?
Since 2016 I have worked on several major events in Ballarat, including Rockabilly Festival (2016), Ballarat Begonia Festival (2017, 2018), Ballarat Heritage Weekend (2017, 2018) and Summer Sundays (2108). My work included creative content development and delivery; performer, stakeholder and volunteer coordination and event and venue management.
Prior to moving to Ballarat in 2010, I worked at some of the most incredible venues, events and festivals the world has to offer.
