A note about the venue

  • Entry to Shed 6 can be gained at both the northern and southern entrances (please note: If you are collecting your ticket at the venue on the day, please use the northern entrance).
  • Doors to your seats open 30 minutes prior to the event start time. This event is General Admission so it’s first in, best dressed.
  • Access to Shed 6 will be for ticket holders only and your tickets will be swapped for event lanyards at the venue.
  • Latecomers will not be admitted until there is a suitable break in the presentations – we recommend arriving early.

Early Ticket Collection
To avoid the queues, you can pick up your tickets prior to Sunday from any Ticketek Box Office or agency. The closest Ticketek Box Office to Shed 6 is located outside of the Michael Fowler Centre and will be open Monday to Friday (9:00 am to 5:00 pm) and Saturday (10:00 am to 4:00pm).

Venue Pick Up
If you wish to collect your tickets on Sunday at the venue, there will be a pop-up Ticketek Box Office open two hours prior to the start time of the event. Please use the northern entrance to Shed 6 as this will be where the tickets will be held.

In both instances you will be required to present ID and the credit card you booked your tickets with, so please ensure you have this with you.

Parking and taxis
With so much happening in the capital at the moment, please make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find a parking spot. There are several car parks near Shed 6, the closest being Wilson’s Queens Wharf car parking located underneath the TSB Bank Arena and accessed at the southern end of this venue.

If you are from out of town, Wellington Combined Taxis is our local taxi company and can be reached on 04 384 4444. Also check out our website for further information about transport and the coolest little capital!
