Junction Presents Open House Launceston Produced by the Festival of Architecture and Sound

Beautiful spaces with incredible acoustics. Be immersed and inspired by a collision of architecture, music and performance.

Wonder-wander through this dreamlike house seeped in Tasmanian history and see how many Von Trapp family demons you can discover. Claremont will host performances by Benjamin Hancock aka Bendy Ben, harpist Emily Sanzaro, and The Wilds from ROOKE.

Showtimes: 11am – 12pm & 1pm – 2pm (120 minutes)

Ticket Price: $35/$30


Access to Claremont is up a small ramp and the audience will firstly move around the house before being seated for the second half of the show. We are committed to accessible and inclusive events which can present challenges as we explore private architectural spaces. Please contact us if you have any accessibility concerns about this show and together we’ll make it possible for you to join us.
