My event has been cancelled or postponed – what do I do?

Sit tight – we will contact you once the details have been confirmed via email and phone (if you haven’t provided an email address).

For postponed events, you will be automatically transferred to the new date and time. You will have up to 4 weeks (if applicable) to request a refund.

Any requests after this will be at the discretion of HOTA or the production company.

If a performance is cancelled, refunds will be processed and returned to the credit card used at the time of the booking.

I booked tickets to an event at HOTA and can no longer attend. Can I request a refund?

HOTA is a member of Live Performance Australia and adhere to the LPA Ticketing Code of Practice which highlights industry best practice – you can find the LPA Ticketing Code of Practice below.

Generally, incorrect purchases or change in ability to attend an event will not be approved.

Refund or exchange requests are unlikely to be considered post event.

#Season Pass Holders

How much does a Season Pass cost?


When can I use my Season Pass?

You can use it for any session from 10am - 3pm. Our last session of the day is 3pm, to allow an hour to enjoy the exhibition before the Gallery closes at 4pm.

Can I come back and use my Season Pass a second time?

Yes, the Season Pass grants you return access to the Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street exhibition.

Can I purchase a Season Pass for a friend?

Absolutely - it's the best way to enjoy the freedom of being able to attend the exhibition as many times as one wants!

Can I give my Season Pass to someone else to enjoy?

No - the Season Pass is available to one person only. Our friendly staff will ask for identification before entering the exhibition, to ensure the pass holder is assigned correctly.
