Located in historic Charlottetown, the Centre offers one of the largest convention and meeting facilities on Prince Edward Island.  With over 26,000 sq. ft. of functional event space, the Centre is within walking distance of three major hotels, shops, music venues, and restaurants. Our fully accessible facility can easily accommodate any function, from an intimate reception to a large-themed banquet.)

 

Sobey Family Theatre

 

A premiere performance or conference venue, the Sobey Family Theatre hosts performing artists and speakers, including those from the Charlottetown Festival, Live @ the Centre and the Symons Medal Presentation and Lecture.  If it is a theatrical dining experience you seek, ask about hosting a banquet on the main stage – an experience your delegates will never forget.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
