City of Sydney Historical Association (COSHA)
Formed in 2000 with the aim of increasing awareness and appreciation of the history of the City of Sydney, COSHA aims to make our history more accessible. COSHA regularly organises guided walks, lectures and tours of historic sites and buildings.
The Eternity Playhouse
opened in November 2013 and is set to become
a prominent and iconic theatre destination in
Sydney. This 126 year old heritage listed building
was recently restored and renovated by the City
of Sydney into a state-of-the-art theatre and
new home for Darlinghurst Theatre Company.
The former Baptist Tabernacle was named in
honour of Sydney identity, Arthur Stace who
became known as Mr Eternity'. It was
in this very church that Stace heard the sermon
that inspired him to anonymously chalk Eternity
on the citys footpaths for over 30 years.
Darlinghurst Theatre Company has worked closely
with the City of Sydney and architects Tonkin
Zulaikha Greer to create a technically advanced
theatre that is also welcoming, accessible
and intimate. With its stunning architecture
and iconic place in Sydneys history,
the Eternity Playhouse is a remarkable and
very special place to see live theatre.
