Exchanges and refunds

All Fringe ticket sales are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. In the event that a show is cancelled, or the event's change resulting in your being unable to attend, you are entitled to a refund or exchange.  


35% of the Fringe programme is Koha (free) - a New Zealand Māori custom which can be translated as gift, present, offering, donation or contribution. Many koha shows have very limited capacity. To avoid disappointment, secure your ticket in advance by booking online for just $5. We also encourage you to also koha at the performance.

Fringe has on average three ticket types: 

  • Full/General: this is the standard full price ticket.
  • Concession rates apply to: all students with ID, Community Service Card holders, and Gold Card holders.

An addict card is for your personal use, with an individual ID number just for you, we don't condone the use of shared Addict Cards. 
Tickets will become (on average) just $12 with this mighty little card. Once you've purchased this card just select the Addict Card price when purchasing tickets and make sure you have your card with you to flash with your ticket as you enter the shows. As well as discounted tickets you'll get free entry to Fringe events and you’ll also get extra special deals during the Fringe (ie: drink specials at some esteemed Fringe venues). 
The Addict Card is a physical card you we'll post to you, once you get it, sign it and you're good to go. If you want to buy a card in person you can do so during the festival from: 
  • BOBS (Box Office on Bond Street)
