Amphitheatre adds to foreshore vibrancy
One of the final projects in the redevelopment of the Busselton foreshore precinct was completed this week, with the roof of the public amphitheatre installed on Wednesday.
Busselton Mayor Grant Henley told the Times the amphitheatre had been developed as a space for local community groups and bands to be able to hold public concerts, as well as offering a space for bigger acts to visit Busselton and perform by the foreshore.
“Ever since we developed the Foreshore Master Plan we had always envisioned some sort of public performing space where free community concerts could be held,” he said.
“I think the amphitheatre certainly gives some activation to the space and gives the opportunities for stage infrastructure for events like the Jetty Swim where presentations can occur.”
Although the roof had to be taken down because of the weather it will be up again soon, with the first event at the facility slated for later this year, in December.
City of Busselton event co-ordinator Peta Tuck said the City was organising a free community concert for December, where the public could celebrate the redevelopment.
“The public have watched this place taking shape and have been patient so we want to give them a taste of what is to come,” she said.
