Online – click the ‘Buy Tickets’ link on the event listing
In person – visit the ACCESS Desk on Level 1 of Manning House, Manning Rd, University of Sydney
How do I collect my tickets?
If you purchased your tickets by phone, you’ll be on the ‘Manning Bar Pre-Sales’ list at the door.
If you purchased them online, it will depend on where you purchased them from and the ticket collection option you selected. (Check your online receipt.)
If you bought them in person, you’ll either get a ticket or be added to the ‘Manning Bar Pre Sales’ list at the front door.
How do I get ACCESS ticket pricing?
You can receieve ACCESS ticket pricing to any gigs at Manning Bar by becoming an ACCESS cardholder. This entitles you to USU membership, on-and-off campus discounts at a range of retail outlets across Sydney, access to clubs and societies and student leadership roles.
ACCESS discounted tickets can only be purchased from the ACCESS desk on Level 1 of Manning House between 10am and 4pm with a current membership card.
