The historic Kingston Butter Factory (KBF) will be returned to the community as Logan City Council transforms the area into a cultural heritage and performing arts hub in 2020.

It will be part of an exciting new KBF Cultural Precinct, which will also feature the city’s largest outdoor events space. The outdoor space will have capacity for an audience of up to 5,000 people and will be able to host major performances, festivals, markets and large-scale community events.

The centrepiece of the reimagined KBF building will be a renewed black box style theatre and a Living Museum of Logan to celebrate the stories of our people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

A living museum provides a cultural tourism experience where visitors can see, hear, taste and engage with the stories of Logan’s intercultural communities. Logan City Council will work with the community to develop content for the living museum.

The KBF building will also have flexible rehearsal space, plus multi-purpose function and event spaces.

The aim is to launch the reimagined KBF building, outdoor events space and precinct grounds in December 2020.
