FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What furniture is provided?

We provide 12 tables and 60 chairs in the Common Room, and if you also include the Common Pavilion, an additional 8 tables and 40 chairs.

There is no additional charge for these items.

 

Do you have AV?

In the Common Room we have a screen, projector, surround sound, and ability to plug your phone into the music jack.

If you need to use the AV, you will need to supply your own cords (ie HDMI) and laptop

The Common Pavilion has a port for your music, and surround sound. This space is not suitable for a screen and projector due to lighting, but TV screens and stands would well.

Both spaces have hand held microphones that can be supplied.

There is no additional charge for these items.

 

Can I bring in entertainment for my event?

For children’s parties, all entertainment needs to be approved by the Community Manager. We love a good facepainter, cupcake making by acre, or a magician. Just note that no glitter, fly-away items can be used so it doesn’t impact the farm.

While we love animals, no petting zoos or similar are permitted.

For other celebrations, please let us know what you are thinking. We just need to make sure any outside entertainment does not impact the farm or restaurant. You can also look at our ‘Activities’ tab to see if something in there is suitable for your event.

 

Are there any limitations on how I can decorate the space?

We think the spaces are beautiful themselves, but understand you want to place your own personal touch! We request that nothing is fly-away, as not to impact our farm.

 

How long should I hire the space for?

On the weekends we do block bookings, being 7am-midday, midday-5pm, and 5-9.45pm.
You can book either one, or a number of these blocks, depending on how long you need for decorating and the actual event.
We recommend you give yourself a minimum of one hour for set up (this is of course dependent on your decorations, you may need more or less- feel free to ask what we recommend), and a minimum of 30 minutes to finish the event. The space needs to be completed available for the next booking by your finish time ie. 5pm.
We are not able to provide access outside of your hire times due to the popularity of our spaces.

 

Is there a time my celebration has to finish?
We are required that the Common Spaces are vacated by 9.45pm due to our proximity to our neighbours.

 

Can you provide recommendations for florists etc?

Absolutely, we work with some amazing businesses who know our spaces really well. So, let us know you want the contacts and we can help.

 

Can we supply our own catering?

Our food and beverage onsite partner is acre. They will provide all food and beverage options for your event. There is no minimum spend within the Common Spaces. If you would like to provide your own wedding cake, there is a $30 charge per cake.

 

Can I drop off items the day before?

Due to our limited storage, we cannot accept any items outside of your hire time without prior approval.

 

Can I leave items to pick up the next day?

We can consider this on a case by case basis, but this is dependent on other bookings we have on.

 

How do we secure the space?

We need you to fill in a booking form, and you will then be invoiced for the room hire. Payment via EFT or credit card is required maximum one week after invoice is received to confirm the space. All food and beverage provided by acre will require payment on the day.

 

Do you have a loading zone I can bump in/out of?

We do have a loading zone, just off Mallett Street that you can use to bump in and out large items. Once this has been finished, you will need to find parking for the day.

 

Do you have parking onsite?

We do not have any available parking onsite. However, Newtown Train Station is only an 8 minute walk away, and Parramatta Road has a large number of buses that go down it, with a bus stop only one block away from Camperdown Commons.

If you or your guests need to drive, there is timed street parking, or a parking station 6 minutes away with a flat daily rate.
