Notifying FRINGE WORLD of your Access Requirements


If you have bought FRINGE WORLD tickets and have specific access requirements in order to participate fully, please email us at access@fringeworld.com.au at least 48 hours before the session with your Order Number, Contact Details, Companion Card number (if relevant) and details of your specific access request.

It is recommended that you arrive early to your event and make yourself known to our Front of House staff so that they can assist you with your seating arrangements.



Booking a Companion Card Ticket


FRINGE WORLD honours the Companion Card fair ticketing scheme. Ticket purchases made by a Companion Card cardholder are eligible to receive a second, complimentary ticket to the same session for a carer or companion (subject to availability).

Here's what you need to do in order to redeem a complimentary ticket for your companion:

If booking in person at a FRINGE WORLD Box Office, you may purchase a paid ticket then receive a complimentary companion card ticket at one of our FRINGE WORLD Box Offices in person by showing your companion card (subject to availability).

If booking online, we will need to process your complimentary companion card ticket after you have made a paid ticket purchase. Please follow these steps:

      1. Choose your show in the online program and book a paid ticket for each show you wish to attend.

      2. To receive your complimentary companion card ticket for your companion, please email access@fringeworld.com.au at least 48 hours before the session with your order confirmation email and companion card number, so that we can process an accompanying companion card ticket for you, pending availability.

      3. Please be sure to include in your email if you have any accessibility requirements that may need to be considered for your order so that we can aim to accommodate these.

      4. After assessing, we will respond to your email issuing details of your complimentary companion card ticket.

      5. Note that the bearer must be able to present the companion card on the night to Front of House staff when requested.

Please Note: Any Performances in the Heath Ledger Theatre or Regal Theatre will need to book companion card tickets through Ticketek. For more information please see below.
