Refunds will not apply to patrons attending a QPAC event who are asked to leave due to displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or failure to comply with COVID-19 guidelines.
In accordance with our Conditions of Entry, all visitors enter QPAC at their own risk. Whilst QPAC has implemented all legally required and recommended control measures in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, by entering QPAC all visitors acknowledge and accept that there currently remains an unquantifiable risk of transmission of COVID-19. All visitors are assumed to have assessed this risk of transmission, including through consideration of their own health condition, in making the decision to attend the centre.
You must provide contact details of all guests in your booking party to comply with Government requirements and QPAC conditions of entry and allow for contact tracing if needed. You can update the details by logging in to your account dashboard and selecting the link next to your event.
Following the announcement by the Queensland Premier relaxing Greater Brisbane’s COVID-19 restrictions from 1am 22 January, QPAC will once again open its theatres at 100% capacity. QPAC theatres will welcome full houses and masks will not be required however patrons may choose to wear masks when they feel social distancing cannot be achieved.
Wearing a mask is recommended in situations where you may not be able to maintain physical distancing such as entering and exiting theatres or moving through areas where lots of people are gathered. Keep a mask with you, so that if you get into one of those situations, you have some added protection.
QPAC’s cloakroom facilities will be available to patrons. Signage, floor markings, bollards and staff will direct patrons to stand 1.5m apart when queuing for the cloakroom and hand sanitizer will be available to all patrons. Patrons will be encouraged to limit contact with staff during the cloaking process.
The Performing Arts Car Park facility remains open and payment can be made on entry by credit card only (Visa or MasterCard). No cash payments are accepted. Please visit our parking page for further information.
To ensure physical distancing and the safety of staff and patrons, entry to QPAC foyers and theatres will be directed via signage, floor markings, bollards and staff. Designated separate entry and exit points will always be clearly signed and monitored by staff. QPAC staff will be on hand to answer any patron queries and to assist with patron movement throughout the building.
It is recommended that patrons leave more time than usual to attend a performance at QPAC as movement throughout the foyers and theatres may be slower than normal to allow for physical distancing.
QPAC’s foyer bars will be open for performance times with strict guidelines around queuing and contactless payment strongly encouraged. Staggered and lengthened interval times will limit the number of patrons in the foyers at any given time. For QPAC restaurant opening times and reservations please check here.
In line with COVID Safe requirements, QPAC has introduced a new system of gathering the contact details of all patrons at the time of booking. Whether booking online or over the phone, all bookers will be required to provide contact details for themselves and their guests prior to completing their transaction.
Patrons who booked tickets prior to COVID-19 or before this system was in place will be contacted via email in the lead up to their scheduled event and be required to provide contact details for themselves and their guests.
Any change in guest details from time of booking to attending QPAC must be updated by logging in to your online account dashboard on the QPAC website or by calling 136 246 prior to the scheduled performance date.
All patron movement whilst at QPAC will be directed by signage, floor markings, bollards and staff to ensure physical distancing is maintained, where possible. Designated separate entry and exit points will be monitored by QPAC staff, earlier access to theatres and lengthened intervals times will ensure limited interactions between patron groups.
Furniture in QPAC’s foyers and food and beverage outlets has been arranged in line with physical distancing requirements.
Under its COVID Safe Plan QPAC is ensuring more frequent and intense cleaning of all facilities within its venues. Patrons will have regular access to sanitizer and QPAC is encouraging contactless interactions and payment wherever possible. Limited numbers in lifts and bathroom facilities at any given time will be monitored by QPAC staff.
QPAC staff will be readily available onsite and prior to a QPAC visit via 136 246 and appropriately trained to answer patron queries and assist where necessary.
Patrons are strongly encouraged to stay in their allocated seats.
Patrons are requested to leave the theatre in a staggered manner to maintain a distance of 1.5m from other groups when exiting the theatre for interval or at the end of the performance.
As with entry to the theatres and foyers, patrons will be required to exit via the designated exit points. Signage and floor markings will assist with directions as will QPAC staff.

QPAC will honour all gift vouchers that have expired during our closure (since 14 March 2020). Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch.
As restrictions around large-scale gatherings look set to continue for the foreseeable future, QPAC’s theatres remain closed. We endeavour, in collaboration with companies and producers, to reschedule events where possible.
