Bar on the Hill

Popping up during Sunset Sessions, and also coinciding with the Biennale of Sydney, is Bar on Hill by Don Tapa. Sit back, relax and graze on your choice of Cheese or Charcuterie packs, or for that little taste of Latin America, why not tantalise your tastebuds with delights from the Ceviche Bar. Also on offer will be a selection of beer, wine and alcoholic refreshers by Archie Rose.

Adverse Weather

Sunset Sessions is an outdoor event and is occasionally subject to adverse weather. We try to go ahead with sessions wherever possible, and do not cancel for light/intermittent/potential rain. We strongly recommend customers bring wet weather gear to performances in case of rain (note the use of umbrellas during performances is not permitted as it obstructs the view of other audience members). Performances will be cancelled only if the weather poses a safety threat to patrons and staff. The decision to cancel a performance is made by the Event and Venue Operations Manager, and will be made by 2pm the day prior to the event.

Patrons accept the risk that weather they consider unsatisfactory may occur on a performance night and acknowledge that tickets will not be refunded unless a session is officially cancelled by the Harbour Trust. Should the session be cancelled by the Harbour Trust due to adverse weather, a full refund will be issued to the purchase holder.

When a session is cancelled, customers will receive an email from Eventbrite advising ticket holders of the cancellation. The cancellation email will notify customers that a session has been cancelled due to adverse weather. In this instance, patrons will receive a full refund and may book for another session if tickets are available.
