Specialist equipment, including the use of marquees or production that is more elaborate can be discussed and quoted for by the Event Coordinator.
Event Coordination Service
Drawing from a wealth of knowledge in activating FCAC’s spaces, our event coordination service provides advice to support and maximise your event experience at FCAC. As your dedicated event contact, The Event Coordinator can advise on staffing requirements, organise production design meetings with our Production Coordinator and provide tours of our spaces.
Event Staffing and Production Services
We work with a dedicated team of technicians, sound engineers, front of house professionals and bartenders who can ensure the best possible outcome for your event. FCAC functions that include the service of alcohol or out-of-hours venue access require a Duty Manager to ensure the delivery of smooth and safe outcomes. The Event Coordinator will recommend the appropriate staff services required for a professional function.
FCAC stocks a range of high-quality beverages such as locally brewed Two Birds beers and cider, CAPI Premium Soft Drinks and a selection of wines. An assortment of sweet and savoury bar snacks are also available.
