Under The Big TOP Pride Ball FAQ’s! (Frequently Asked Questions) 

Q1. Are there assigned seats or just tables?  

You choose the table you sit on when you book, however there are no assigned seats at each table. Table numbers will be on each display, and GV Pride event coordinators will be available if you have forgotten your table number or are having challenges with finding your table on the night.  

Q2. What is included in my ticket?  

Your ticket includes entry to the event, a 2-course meal, entertainment from our fabulous performers and 1 free drink on arrival of either beer, wine or soft drink. All other drinks need to be purchased (including signature cocktails/mocktails).  

Q3. What time do I arrive?  

Doors open at 6pm, with the event formally starting at 7pm. We recommend coming before 6:30pm to get the most out of your night! 

Q4. Will there be clowns?  

GV Pride have not hired any clowns for this event, however as the dress code is “take us to the circus” we cannot control how event attendees dress/dress up, or what costumes might inspire them. 

Q5. I’m an ally (non-queer) person, what’s important for me to know in how to support the LGBTIQA+ community on the night?  

This is a brave and affirming space for all people to be authentically themselves. Please be mindful of any unconscious bias or judgements you may hold, as well as being mindful of misgendering, using a person’s affirming pronouns and heteronormative behaviours/language. It’s important that all people feel brave to be themselves, welcomed, and included. 

Q6. I have not purchased a ticket and would like to show up on the night. Are tickets available at the door?  

Tickets for this event will likely sell out before the event. All dietary needs tickets need to be purchased by January 24th to ensure the Woolshed can cater to needs as required. Limited tickets might be available on the night if not sold beforehand.  

Q7. Can I bring my child, nibling (or niece/nephew) or friend who is under 18?  

Unfortunately, not this time. Under the Big TOP is a strictly 18+ event. Head to our website to check out what all ages events are happening throughout the year.  

Q8. What do I wear!? Is it a costume party? 

This year’s dress theme is “take us to the circus!”. Costumes are not required; your outfit might look like: 

– Wearing a circus-themed costume/outfit or giving circus vibes 🎪 

– Wearing your brightest colours 🌈 

– Wearing something comfy that makes you happy and affirmed 🥰 

You being yourself and feeling affirmed is what’s important to us. 💖 

Q9. Does the venue take cash and card? 

Yep, both! 💵💳 

Q10. Is there a bus drop off at the end of the night? 

Bus drop off is not included as part of this event. We recommend pre-planning your transport to and from the venue by ride sharing with friends, allocating a designated driver or booking a taxi 🚕 

Q11. Will you have rainbow pride merchandise for sale again? 

Absolutely! Merchandise will be available from 6pm to 7:30pm. After that, all merchandise sales will need to go through the website and arranged collection/postage in the days after the event. We will have pins, stubby holders, mugs, flags and and lanyards at a minimum for sale.  

Q12. How accessible is this event and venue?  

Accessibility: The Woolshed is an accessible venue for wheelchair users and those with mobility needs, with ramps at the entry, level flooring inside the venue and on the decking area, and a mobility inclusive toilet. Although there will be bright lights and loud music, we have made sure to not include strobe lights. For our friends with sensory needs, there is plenty of grassed area and undercover spaces outside the venue for a quiet moment away from the excitement inside. Toilets will not be labelled by gender but will be identified by cubicles and urinals. For more information regarding accessibility, please email gvpride@gvpride.org so we can do our best to support your needs at the event.
