This year Century Venues secured approval from the NSW Government to undertake the careful removal of waste and non-historic instrusions to enable a close inspection of the underlying historic fabric of the building. Tons of waste and 1980's partitioning have now been taken away revealing beautiful detail on the Dress Circle Juliet Balcony.
While more needs to be removed, engineer, acoustic and fire safety experts have been able to inspect the building. Preliminary reports are in and are promising. While much of the building will need upgrading, so far, no major obstacles have been identified that would prevent the Victoria from being revived as a live performance venue.
