Event details

Join Lake House Arts Centre Operations Manager and the founders of Lake House Arts Centre for a guided tour of the facility and journey into the little-known notorious past of Lake House.

A boarding house, a hospital, a cult, a music video, a haunting, a bohemian rhapsody - Lake House Arts has had a colourful history of characters through its doors.

Learn some of the most notorious stories and how Lake House Arts Centre was saved from destruction on the eve of its 20th anniversary birthday.

Public will be able to join tour events onsite and interactive tours will be available online and on social media.

Presented by: Lake House Trust
