This event is free and open to all but online registration is essential.

Entry to ticket holders will be prioritised and given on a first in, best dressed basis until the room reaches capacity. If an event is full, this may result in standing room or delayed admittance until an appropriate time.

We recommend early arrival to allow time for finding the venue and securing a seat to the event. Doors open 15 minutes before the advertised start time. 

If you could not register but would like to attend, you are welcome to join a stand-by queue on the night as seats may become available due to late cancellations. Please note, this is not guaranteed so you come at risk of non-admittance.

Located conveniently at the Broadway end of the city, the Seymour is close to Central and Redfern Stations, with great bus and rail links, ample parking and plenty of nearby facilities. Pedestrian access is from City Road directly opposite Victoria Park.

If you are coming by school coach or mini bus, the best drop-off point is Maze Crescent, behind the Seymour, accessible either from City Road via Butlin Avenue. There is a drop-off point on City Road about 100 metres up from the Seymour Centre after the bus stop, but coaches must not wait in this area.
