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.  

Koha* Shows

Here at Fringe, we are super into KOHA and FREE stuff - 25% of the programme is free or koha.

*Koha is a New Zealand Maori custom which can be translated as gift, present, offering, donation or contribution.

Many koha shows have very limited capacity. You can save a seat to koha shows for a reservation fee of $5 and then add koha at the performance. Or you can just turn up and risk it, also a valid option.

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.

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