Corner Church and Market Streets
Riverside Parramatta is a complex comprised of various theatre spaces and is located just outside the heart of Parramatta CBD. Riverside remains a vibrant hub within Western Sydney and has been home to Sydney Festival events for many years.
Riverside Theatre is the largest space within the venue, and boasts a traditional proscenium arch, 761 seat theatre venue with stalls, circle and gallery levels. The architectural design is based on the common European Opera House concept to provide a very warm, intimate and live performance space.
The Lennox is a flexible, multi-use performance space which allows a large number of seating configurations in both theatre or cabaret style.
Raffertys Theatre is the smallest within the venue with 84 seats.

The theatre is approximately a 10 minute walk from the station. Exit from Darcy St, turn right onto Church St and follow it up until you are at the theatre which is just on the other side of the Lennox Bridge.
