Semi Permanent


I have a ticket but can no longer attend…

We're sad to hear that but please email to arrange a refund. I'm afraid we'll have to hold onto 15% though, to cover fees and costs.

Does the venue have wheelchair access?

Yes. For those with mobility restrictions or wheelchairs, level access and disabled seating is available in all theatres. There are also wheelchair accessible toilets on site.

Is my ticket transferable?

Depending on availabilities, we may be able to transfer your ticket. Please email to discuss options.

What are the qualifications for a discounted ticket?

There are no qualifications for discounted tickets.

Is there a group booking discount?

Yes! We encourage group bookings, the more the merrier. We can even arrange discounts for groups of 5 or more. Please get in touch with our Community Relations Manager to discuss options.

Can I film or record the event?

Please take as many photos and videos outside the main talks hall as your heart desires! We want you to share your experience with the world. For anything inside the talks hall, please keep your cameras at bay. No one wants to stare at a screen while someone is presenting. This year we're bringing along a whole camera crew - so we've got you covered! Keep your eyes on our site for updates.

Sorry, but releasing recording from the event for commercial distribution or of length over 5 minutes is not allowed without the written consent from the artist and Semi Permanent - In lots of cases the artists are talking about sensitive topics.

Can I volunteer?

We're always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us bring the program to life. Whether you're assisting our artists, managing a small team of your own or helping the production team, it's a fun, casual experience and we encourage you to get involved.

Casual parking is available at these sites for a fee.

I'm from the media and I always get free stuff will you give me free stuff?

If the exchange is mutually beneficial. We're a small team with a big event but in an ideal world we'd love to give everyone free stuff! Get in touch and we'll let you know

How can I become a sponsor / exhibitor / speaker at the event?
