an update from us | virtual exhibitions, workshops & school holiday fun!

We re-open from Tuesday 22 June!

We reopen our foyers, galleries and Box Office in-person sales on Tuesday. Opening times will be Tuesday to Friday 11am to 4pm and on Saturday from 9am to 2pm. Thank you to our wonderful community who have patiently awaited updates as we work through impacted events and their postponements or cancellations. 

Show the love…

If you find yourself in the position that you can donate to the local arts scenes at this time, please help us help others. We’d like to make sure our local community of creatives and arts lovers can continue to access opportunities and that we can adapt quickly to meet their needs. Cancellations and rescheduling of events is a costly exercise and impacts are being felt across the industry.  You can make a tax deductible donation here.

Book ahead with confidence

During these uncertain times, we understand it is hard to book ahead with confidence. Our refund policy is to always offer refunds to ticket holders for rescheduled or cancelled events. This means you can book tickets for your favourite artists with faith that your money will not be lost in the case of event changes. Read our FAQs here.
