We are excited to announce the return of live performance to the Portland Arts Centre, and other venues around the shire.

Keep an eye out around town for posters to let you know what's coming up, as well as our facebook, and our e-newsletter.

What's On flyers for your fridge door will also be available each season. You'll be able to collect them from the PAC, Council services, and many local businesses.

CANCELLED - Small Night In: Lloyd Spiegel

Lloyd Spiegel

Regretfully, we have had to cancel our Small NIght In with Lloyd Spiegel as he is unwell. He will be cancelling his tour until the middle of this year.

Ticket holders will be issued a full refund. If you have not received contact about your tickets before Thursday 18 February, please email enquiry@portlandartscentre.com.au or call 03 5522 2263 for assistance.

Picking up the guitar at age four, Lloyd Spiegel played his first professional show at age ten and was touring the east coast of Australia at 12.

By 16 he was on tour in the United States, cutting his teeth as a true travelling blues man. Lloyd’s travels not only honed his craft, earned him a swag of awards and brought him to take counsel with the founding fathers of modern blues – it taught him the most important part of being a blues musician: connecting with everyday people.

Lloyd has toured extensively throughout Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. His contributions to music have earned him myriad accolades, such as Best Artist and Best Album at the Australian Blues Awards and being named as one of Australian Guitar Magazine’s Top 50 Australian guitarists of all time.

He has also supported the likes of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Etta James, and sat in with masters of the blues genre such as Brownie McGhee and Luther Allison.

“A revelation, the consummate performer, an Oz Blues & Roots icon.”

SOLD OUT! Archie Roach: Tell me Why

Archie Roach

A new work sharing stories and songs from Archie's new memoir and companion album.

Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader, and 2019 Victorian Australian of The Year – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was.

He is Archie Roach.

Tell Me Why, the title of his new memoir, is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and also of a great love story. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.

​We are beyond honoured to welcome Archie Roach AM to the stage in Gunditjmara Country to tell his story, in words and song.
