Frequently Asked Questions
+ When will I need to pay for out of hours staffing?
A staffing cost of $40p/h applies to all functions outside of business hours ( 9 - 5, Mon - Fri), or if event requires additional staff assistance. Staff have a minimum 3 hour call out fee ($120)
+ If we are paying for a staff member at our event, what will they be doing?
The staff member for each event is primarily responsible for the safety and security of the event. The will be responsible for opening and securing the venue, they will be the onsite safety officer, assessing number of attendees, cleanliness including spills and accidents.
They will not be primarily available for serving food or drinks or otherwise servicing the event itself. However, if the staff member is not being engaged in their safety and security role, they will be on hand to help out if required. This should not be factored into events in terms of your own management of the event (i.e only having one person serving drinks when two are needed as the staff member will assist).
If in doubt ask us how this will work with your event.
+ When can I set up my event?
Set up for the event must occur within the hours of your booking unless otherwise discussed.
If your event occurs in the evening and you are wanting to set up in the morning, a 3-hour staff call out fee will apply to open the building if it is out of business hours.
+ When can I pack down my event?
Pack down for the event is preferred to occur during the hours of your booking.
Pack down can occur the morning after your event before 12.00pm. This will attract a charge of 50% of the space hire fee per hour plus a staff call out. This occurs as we are unable to use the space until it is packed down.
+ Does the cleaning fee apply for all events?
