Walsh Bay has become an active theatre district. Since 2004, the largest performing arts venue with nearly 900 seats is the Roslyn Packer Theatre. This is home to the Sydney Theatre Company and the Sydney Dance Company. The location also hosts the Sydney Writers’ Festival each May. Its namesake is Roslyn Packer, a major benefactor to the arts in Sydney. Nearby are the Wharf 1 and Wharf 2 Theatres. They are also managed by the Sydney Theatre Company.
