Salons and Theatre productions are also staged here. Venue for hire for meetings, workshops, performances. Seats up to 40 people.
THE PLACE - THEN
“The horse, with or without wings, used to be a common symbol of the soul’s journey: a trip to other worlds where the visitor might learn the great secrets of life, death and magic, and return to earth with wisdom”
The woman’s dictionary of symbols & sacred objects
epicentre has a strong connection with horses – built by his brother in 1926 for Billy Duncan, a prominent jockey and Melbourne Cup winner, the house buzzed with racing people and well-known artists.
It was also the social centre of Caulfield North where people like Sir Hubert Opperman, Sir Walter Lindrum, and other famous sporting personalities of the day would gather for charitable functions. Various Caulfield Mayors have lived here.
