South Street began as a debating competition run by the Royal South Street Society in 1891. It soon grew and now includes public speaking, acting, singing, music, dance and calisthenics.
Since 1965 it has been held in Her Majesty’s Theatre Ballarat, Australia’s oldest continually operating theatre. It was purchased after the South Street Society ran an appeal.
Today Her Majesty’s is the main venue for the Eisteddfod, but it was gifted to the City of Ballarat in 1987 to enable government funding for major upgrades, restorations and maintenance work.
