Koha* Shows

Here at Fringe, we support financial accessibility to art, around 25% of the programme is Free or Koha.

Koha is a New Zealand Māori custom which can be translated as gift, present, offering, donation or contribution. Some places refer to it as ‘pay what you feel’.

Koha in the Fringe usually means you are experiencing an event that is: development work, expressing new formats, ideas or work, or, work an artist specifically wants to be as accessible as possible. So you as audience decide what you’d like to give.

As many shows have limited capacity Fringe offers a koha seat reservation for minimum $5. This guarantees you entry and you have the option to pay more if you are able and wish to online or at the event, which means a lot and we encourage to 'pay what you feel' in return for the art. When booking online, simply edit the ticket price to the amount you want to pay once you've selected your ticket.

All Fringe tickets are e-tickets and we have few different ticket types:

  • Full Price/General Admission: this is the standard full price ticket.
