Event booking process
Please read the step-by-step process for confirming your event booking. While we make every attempt to accommodate as many bookings on site as possible, we receive many more enquiries than we have space and resources available to accommodate, therefore we cannot accept every booking request that we receive. Fed Square reserves the right to decline bookings at its discretion, to ensure optimal balance and quality delivery of confirmed activities.
