The Moat Festival is an annual showcase of some exceptional emerging talent at La Trobe University. The festival was launched in 1984 by then Vice-Chancellor J.F. Scott as an initiative to bring the University and the public together to participate in the performing arts. He viewed this first Moat Festival as an experiment to remove the intellectual barriers of higher education, a way to add a little to the life of the University.
Moat Festival is the longest continuously running student theatre festival in Australia. 2020 marks the 36th Moat Festival! Read more about Moat Fest 2020 here.
