Congratulations to all who entered this adventurous giveaway.

Ahead of unveiling its highly anticipated $140m Little Malop Street Redevelopment, the Geelong Arts Centre has announced the winner of its Golden Ticket giveaway.

Packed with money-can’t-buy experiences and valued at over $4K, including epic experiences, heart-stopping performances, and mind-bending spectacles, the extraordinary Golden Ticket was awarded to Geelong local Tanya on Friday.

Keep up with the latest in local news and entertainment here.

Tanya was presented with the coveted prize worth $4000 for a whole year’s worth of entertainment at the Geelong Arts Centre.

“It’s heartwarming to know that Tanya’s passion for the arts runs deep, having graced our stages countless times and witnessed many performances,” the Geelong Arts Centre said of the winner.

“We’re thrilled to officially welcome Tanya into the Geelong Arts Centre family, and we can’t wait to see her experience all the magic with her friends and family in the coming year!”

To win this arts adventure, entrants had to pick up a copy of the July issue of the July Forte Magazine (or check it out online here), head to the centerfold and find the Golden Ticket with a QR to scan. It then took entrants to a website; where they had to follow the steps by signing up to Geelong Arts Centre’s What’s On e-newsletter at and answer the questions – with all the golden answers hidden in the artwork!

The reimagined Geelong Arts Centre will officially swing open its shiny new doors on Saturday 19 August. Victoria’s newest and boldest cultural asset will celebrate this milestone with a huge four-week grand opening festival, featuring stellar headliners in celebrated multi-ARIA-Award winning R&B-pop artist, Jessica Mauboy, and an Australian comedy triple-header, featuring Dave Thornton, Dilruk Jayasinha and Lizzy Hoo. The festival also features the likes of Missy Higgins, Opera Australia, Belvoir St Theatre, family fun with Windmill Theatre Company, a vibrant community open day, backstage tours, and so much more, with both free and ticketed events that celebrate stories, creativity and diversity.
