WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

It is not essential to bring anything with you, but there are a few things that may make your visit more pleasant...



FOOD & BEVERAGES

We encourage guests to pack a picnic to enjoy during the show. Please note, knives and picnic tables are prohibited.

WHAT IF IT'S RAINING?

The show will go on, if it's safe to do so! We hope that if it has been raining, you will still join us for some fun.

It it's a little muddy, we suggest bringing portable chair or blanket to sit on - one with a waterproof lining is ideal. Guests are also encouraged to wear comfortable all weather clothing and shoes.

If a performance is to be cancelled, patrons will be notified via a text message and an email. Earliest notification of a cancelled performance will be on the day of the scheduled performance. Patrons affected by a cancelled performance are invited to exchange their tickets for an alternative performance date/time or receive a lifetime credit to use on future shows.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR COVID-19 SAFE THEATRE

Vaccinations

As currently outlined in the NSW & VIC Government’s Covid-19 roadmap, there is an expectation that all attendees 16+ will be required to show proof of full vaccination to participate as an audience member at the Gardens this summer. Further direction on the implementation of this requirement is continually evolving, please keep up to date with the current government directives. We anticipate that exemptions from vaccination will only apply to those with proof of a valid reason as determined by public health orders.

Once you're seated, please refrain from moving your picnic blanket or any personal items out of the space you have been allocated. Please aim to arrive with your full party so we may seat you together with enough room around your picnic setup.
