Ticket Holder Guidelines

University Concert Hall (UCH) has implemented a range of control measures to ensure the protection and safety of performing artists, staff and customers.

Directed by Government guidelines, it is critical that these measures are strictly followed by those attending shows. These guidelines however, are subject to change. Please continue to check the UCH website and UCH social media for updated information.
