With regards to the ongoing impacts of coronavirus (COVID 19) on the performing arts industry, a number of future performances at Geelong Arts Centre and Costa Hall have had to be cancelled or postponed.
We are looking to reschedule a number of affected Melbourne Fringe Takeover shows to later in the year - and will be making further announcements on new dates for shows next week
Blake Everett & Oliver Coleman: Dig Their Own Graves has been postponed and will not go ahead on the original date, ticket holders are entitled to a full refund. However, we encourage all ticket holders to hold on to tickets until we have a rescheduled date. We will email you with the details of the new date as soon as that is confirmed.
Individuals who retain tickets as part of a Fringe Bundle will maintain their bundle pricing.
