Who is Henry Carmichael?
We love that you’re curious, so please let us share with you the answer to, “Who is the Henry Carmichael Theatre named after?”.
Henry Carmichael was a Scottish minister, teacher, and passionate educationist. The Theatre is named after him because he was a founder of Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts in 1833. He later moved to the Hunter Valley where he pioneered viticulture in the colony… and for that, we raise a glass to say, “cheers!”.
