After hours: There are no staff at STACC after hours and the front doors do not automatically open. Security will open the building and flexible space/s for you. You must provide a doorperson to open the doors for guests as they arrive (doors must not be chocked open), or you can book front of house staff to assist at an additional cost.

Event Permits: Some activities require you to obtain an event permit. We will assess your application and contact you if this is required.
