Immerse yourself in a weekend full of glorious, weird & wonderful costumes, music, socialising, food and drinks, all held within the warmth of a hotel.

TICKET PRICE INCREASE

effective 1 February 2022

Due to this Governments recent policy changes & mandates,  we are now facing significant event budget cost increases due to increased staffing requirements, 3rd party & security costs.

Therefore and regrettably we are unable to hold the current ticket prices further and they will be increasing 
from the 1st February 2022 as per below

Friday night only                 $55   ->     $70
Saturday night only              $95    ->     $115
Friday & Saturday night        $135   ->    $155

We sincerely apologise in advance to those who may be affected by this in future months, however if we are to continue with this event this year this adjustment must sadly be made now.

Our desire & dream for this event has always been that it is INCLUSIVE of all, without discrimination or segregation of anyone. We are therefore saddened by the current mandates and hold hope that with still 7 months until the ball, we may seem some sense of reason return, or at least the right for the use of Rapid Antigen Tests so to permit ALL to attend. 

SATURDAY EVENT ONLY

SLEEPY BIRD   $87.5 SOLD OUT

GENERAL -  until 31 Jan 2022      $95
