Conspiracy 911 – is not really suitable for children, therefore there is no child price at $10, however student price is $12

Despatch – group of eight concession is $12, not $10 as advertised.

Please Don’t Feed the Models – group of eight concession is $12, not $10 as advertised

Shadows of Care – will not be offering any concession for groups of eight or more.

Two – will not be offering any concession for groups of eight or more.

Zirkus Goes Bizurkus – Fringe Addict ticket prices are the same as concession prices, $10.

Absolutely Positively Walking – (although not a BATS Theatre show) Barry’s Bush Tour – will be running on the 19th at 4pm, not on the 18th 4pm.
