THE ISSUE

 

  • Council closed the Amphitheatre stage in early 2014 due to structural safety concerns.

 

  • The community clearly indicated that it wants a functional theatre at the Haven site suitable for future generations.

 

  • November 2015 - Council received a revised design option from its architect. Friends of the Haven and all interested community groups agreed in principle to this design option called 1A.

 

  • December 2016 - Council approved a Delayed Commencement Development Application. 

 

  • Haven Promotions Inc launched the fundraising to help Rebuild the Stage by producing Chloe Charody's circus opera, The Carnival, over 3 shows at The Concourse Theatre, Chatswood. Over $58,000 raised!

  • 2017 - Council approved an allocation of $544,000 in the 2017-18 Budget for the Haven Stage Renewal. This is half the estimated cost. The community and possible grants are to fund the remainder. A further Contingency of $300,000 is included in the Budget.

  • ​Haven Promotions Incorporated (HPI) received deductible gift recipient (DGR) status in October 2017. All donations to HPI over $2 are now fully tax deductible and go to support rebuilding the stage .

  • HPI will present another all star fundraising Leonard Cohen tribute concert at The Concourse on 24 March 2018 featuring Canadian cabaret sensation Patricia O'Callaghan.
