This iconic Ballarat venue speaks for itself, and marries perfectly to the timeless history of the 55th PSA Gala Dinner.

Dating back to 1859, the Mechanics Institute was established as a home of education and learning of 'Mechanical Arts' for Mechanics - a general term applied to semi-skilled and skilled tradesmen.  Today this beautiful heritage building is home to an extensive library and welcomes visitors from across the globe for cultural events and curated exhibitions; and plays a significant role in Ballarat's rich heritage. 

We will start our night in the beautiful Minerva Theatre, who's decorative features offers the elegance of years gone by, for welcome drinks and canapes, followed by a three course dinner prepared by the renowned Peter Ford Catering, and local entertainment.  For those that wish to continue after the dinner, a *late-night supper and drinks will be available at Mitchell Harris Wines.
