The Sunset Veranda will return for the 2019 Fringe World Festival with a season of activities, performances and entertainment at Scarborough Beach.
The Sunset Veranda is a pop-up open-air bar, with free entry to the public, delicious food vendors, a viewing area to watch the glorious sunset and an enclosed ticketed performance space.
Attendees to the Sunset Veranda are able to relax and enjoy the summer beachside atmosphere before and after shows. As the pop-up bar is an attraction in itself, a great mix of family and adult groups float in and out all evening.
Free entry to the 'Under the Sky' open-air bar / Big Top shows $6 - $36.
Sunset Veranda has a maximum capacity of 500, with 200 seats in the Big Top.
Sunset Veranda is open 5.00pm - 10.00pm Thursday/Fridays and 3.00pm - 10.00pm Saturdays/Sundays as licensed venue. The venue will also be open at other times for kids/all ages activities and shows.
The performance space within the Sunset Veranda will be contained in a 18m x 18m Big Top circus tent. Theatre seating configuration will allow for up to 200 patrons per show, with staging and production dependent on individual performance requirements.
The performance times will vary from day to day, however the duration of amplified noise will not exceed three hours per night, within the hours of 5.00pm and 10.00pm. The only exception will be in the event of family shows which will occur during the day within the confines of the Big Top.
