Our Events

All our venues are wheelchair accessible and most include an Assistive Hearing system. We accept Companion Card bookings for all ticketed events. This allows the cardholder to bring a companion with them for free. Companion Cards do not cover the cost of other experiences such as meals or Meet & Greets.

A range of events have Relaxed Performances, Auslan Interpretation, Audio Description and Captioning. There are other accessible options on offer for some events. To find out if an event offers one of these options, check the event page. Event pages include access icons to identify accessible experiences at a glance.
