About National Art School

The venue has hosted numerous functions, including cocktails, weddings, commercial launches, dinner parties, photoshoots and many more. Space has a charisma that makes every event memorable and undoubtedly charming.

Facilities and Capacity

The sandstone wall is 10 metres high and gives an incredible appeal to the inner cathedral. Space influences its historical status as old Darlinghurst Gaol's women wing. This space has earlier witnessed the doom of infamous criminals like Kate Leigh, also known as the "Queen of the Underworld.” However, the cells are removed, and space has been expanded to create a venue. Still, the walls show the past by embracing their presence.

The National Art School wedding venue has courtyards that surround the Cell Block Theatre offers perfect space for entertainment to compliment the indoors. The wedding venue also has a special gallery lawn to conduct outer wedding ceremonies. The gallery is near the theatre, and the overall ambience created through the walls makes the space serene and private.
