Your safety and wellbeing
Safety has always been our number one priority, now more than ever, with new layers of safety measures integrated to our everyday operations.
Please take a moment to review this information to understand our current health and safety protocols.
We all have a collective responsibility to keep each other safe. These basic principles must be adhered to throughout your time with us.
In order to protect everyone's health and wellbeing, please note the following before visiting:
- Patrons must be free of symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days prior to the event.
- Patrons must not have come into contact with anyone displaying the symptoms of COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to the event.
- Patrons will be asked basic COVID-19 health screening questions on arrival at the venue
- Patrons must observe physical distancing and other health and safety protocols put in place by the venue
- The venue will offer a full refund or exchange to any ticket purchaser who has developed COVID-19 symptoms, has come into contact with anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or a confirmed case of COVID-19.
Reduced box office hours and audience capacity
The Box Office is open but with reduced hours Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
In accordance with NSW Health regulations, The Albury Entertainment Centre is operating with 75% of audience capacity.
Changes to our 'Babes in Arms' policy
From Friday 13 November 2020, due to a Public Health Order, anyone under 18 months must now possess a ticket as they will be counted towards our allowed capacity. In the past a child under 18 months would be admitted "Free On The Knee" and didn't need a ticket, due to COVID-19 restrictions this is no longer the case.
When you book tickets now, there will be a new ticket for ‘Under 18 months’. If you are planning on bringing your child you must let us know, rather than risk being turned away if we are at capacity. The cost of the child attending will vary for each event, so please check the price list when booking your tickets.
We apologise for any inconvenience, and appreciate your patience as we work through these ever changing restrictions.
Due to COVID-19, additional Terms and Conditions of Sale now apply to all bookings. Please read the following terms and conditions, in addition to the standard Terms and Conditions, prior to purchasing your tickets.
