During large events or performances within the facility, including the use of amplified music, the doors to the venue may need to remain closed to meet the noise requirements (except for limited periods to meet operational requirements such as delivery of catering supplies or the like).”

If the venue is not returned in an acceptable state Renewal SA will hire contractors to clean the venue and will invoice you for the costs.

Larger-scale Events (up to 850 people) in Flour Shed

Capacity

The Flour Shed’s maximum occupancy is 850 people when the large roller door on the south-eastern wall is secured open at a minimum height of 2m for the duration of an event.

This height is adequate for safety purposes; however, it is recommended that the roller door is opened further to increase ventilation and air flow.

    • 4 wash basins (three wash basins required)
  • Female

Note: these are minimum requirements based on 425 males and 425 females — additional toilets may be hired for the comfort of patrons.
