Both spaces have hand held microphones that can be supplied.

Do you supply whiteboard, lectern, stage and/or flipcharts?

We don’t supple lecterns, whiteboards and/or flipcharts, but you are welcome to bring your own. You are also more than welcome to bring in butchers paper and blu tack, to stick on the walls and windows.

We have a small stage that can be set up in either area.


What workshops can I run?

We evaluate this on a case by case basis, so let us know what you are doing in your enquiry and we can look into it.


The workshop starts at 9am, can I bump in earlier?

You are welcome to bump in from the time of your booking, no access can be provided before this time. So, if your event starts at 9am, make sure when you make your booking you give yourself plenty of time to set up. We recommend a minimum of 30 minutes for small workshops, and more for larger or more complicated ones.

Also, on the weekends we do block bookings, 7am-midday, midday-5pm and 5-10pm. Any workshops on the weekend will be charged in blocks.


Our event starts at 7am, will there be staff to assist?

acre’s Functions Manager is available from 9am to assist with your event. If you would like staff before this time, this will be an additional cost, which acre can advise.


I’m hiring the Common Room or Common Pavilion, is the courtyard included?

If you are only hiring the Common Room or Common Pavilion , the courtyard is not included in the hire. This is a ‘buffer’ space between two separate events.

The courtyard is included if you hire both the Common Pavilion and Common Courtyard for the duration of your event.


Do I have to set up myself?

Acre staff will set up all furniture for you. However, any additional set up need to be done by yourself, during your hired time. Please also tidy any of your mess at the end of your workshop.


We are having a two day workshop, can we leave items in the room overnight?

We consider these on a case by case basis. It is very dependent on whether we have another booking after yours, so speak to us about it and we will see what we can do.


Do you have disabled access?

Yes, the whole site is disabled friendly, with a disabled parking spot on Pidcock Street.


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