The City of Karratha may use your personal information to: 

Enable you to purchase tickets, including, where applicable, to process your credit card payment transactions,

Refunds and exchanges

The Red Earth Arts Precinct has a no refunds policy to align with the Live Performance Australia Ticketing Code of Practice. The no refunds policy is outlined below: 

Tickets are not refundable. Refunds are only available as per the Live Performance Australia Ticketing Code of Practice. You have the right to a refund if the event to which you purchased an authorised ticket is cancelled, rescheduled (and you cannot attend the rescheduled event) or significantly relocated. 

We do not give refunds or exchanges under any other circumstances including changing your mind, sickness, holidays or wanting to exchange tickets to the same performance on another date. 


While we endeavour to keep ticket-holders informed, details may change sometimes with little or no notice. For example, artists or other participants may be added, withdrawn or substituted or the venue may change. 

Despite any seat number on your ticket, we do not guarantee you any particular seat. If we need to allocate a different seat to you for operational reasons, including a change of venue, we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure it is in a location of comparable value to the seat number on your ticket. 

We make every effort to ensure pricing is correct but we reserve any rights we may have to correct genuine errors. 

Refusal of admission

We may refuse entry to an Event or have you removed from the venue on valid grounds, including if: 

(a)          you fail to comply with these General Terms and Conditions or the venue’s Conditions of Entry; 

(b)          we have not received payment for your ticket or you are unable to produce a ticket; 

(c)           you are intoxicated or you behave in a threatening, disruptive or offensive manner; 

(d)          you interfere unreasonably with another visitor’s enjoyment of the Event or venue or with our staff carrying out their functions; or 

(e)          as specified elsewhere in these General Terms and Conditions. 

We may need to refuse admission for safety or security reasons, in which case we will refund your ticket if it was purchased in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions. 

Unless otherwise specified, we do not provide supervision of children. All children requiring supervision must be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times and may be refused admission or attendance if not accompanied by a supervising adult.
