We have increased daily cleaning activities across the venue, with door handles, surfaces and high-touch areas cleaned and sanitised frequently. Venues are also cleaned before and during events.

Hand sanitiser will be available onsite but to avoid queues and congestion, we recommend patrons bring their own as well. Bars and water fountains may be closed so you may wish to bring a bottle of water, too. Only bags smaller than A3 will be permitted into the venue. Backpacks are not permitted.

What do I need to do to keep myself and others safe?

There is an onus on personal responsibility for the health and wellbeing of everyone:

  • Wash your hands often and cover coughs and sneezes in your arm.
  • Keep 1.5m from others wherever possible in foyers and queues.
  • If you are vulnerable, talk to your doctor about what is appropriate for you.
