nullThe Perth community is invited to explore the lesser known aspects of a Subiaco icon in an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Regal Theatre on Sunday 14 September.

Regal Theatre Foundation Chairman Richard Diggins, former chairman of the Theatre Baker Trust John Thornton and Regal Theatre board members will lead a guided tour of the building and explain restoration plans as part of the City of Subiaco’s free See Subi on Sunday walking series.

The building is widely recognised for its heritage significance and is listed on the City of Subiaco’s Register of Places of Cultural Heritage Significance, as well as the State Heritage Register and the National Trust’s List of Classified Heritage Places.

The city’s See Subi on Sunday walking series, coordinated by volunteer Marion Gathercole,  offers the community free guided walks through Subiaco that allow participants to enjoy its history, heritage and beauty. The walks take approximately one and a half hours to complete and are suitable for all ages.

Community members with past and present connections to the areas visited are invited to share personal anecdotes that enhance the appreciation of the location explored during each walk.

‘The Grand Dame of Subiaco’ tour will take place at 1.30pm on Sunday 14 September starting and finishing at the Regal Theatre, corner Hay Street and Rokeby Road, Subiaco. No RSVP is required.
