Events at Forum Melbourne

Host your next event at one of Melbourne’s most unique and iconic venues.

The Forum Melbourne has undergone a meticulous restoration and extensive refurbishment over the last 12 months creating an incredible and versatile state-of-the-art event space perfect for cocktail events from 400 - 1500 and dinners from 250 - 550.

Forum I

Melbourne's most exciting CBD event space.

Stunning architecture, a mesmerising proscenium and one of Melbourne's most famous stages, Forum I benefits from a large unobstructed floor space with adjustable flooring at the rear.

Mezzanine & Foyer

Now that's what we call an entrance.

With a striking 1920's mosaic floor and magnificent original marble staircases, this space benefits from high ceilings and natural light during the day and a view of Federation Square at night. Split over two levels, it is suitable for up to 300 guests for pre or post cocktail receptions and pre dinner drinks or VIP area.

Marriner Group Catering

With the re-imagining of one of Melbourne’s most iconic and unique venues, the Marriner Group Catering team decided the only way forward would be to offer something truly outside the norm.

We’re a bunch of dedicated chefs, we love food and want to match it to your event with a menu specifically designed for you and your clients.  We’ll take the time to meet with you and discuss your requirements, then develop a menu that will exceed any expectations.

Melbourne is the food capital of Australia, we embrace it and your guests deserve it.
