Weather Policy: What happens if it rains or gets cold?

Nobody likes the rain but as an outdoor event, Lovers by Lakeside is subject to the elements and will go ahead in most weather conditions, including light, intermittent or potential rain. A cancellation will only be considered if the conditions present a danger to patrons or staff.

Patrons accept the risk that weather they consider unsatisfactory may occur on the night and acknowledge that tickets are non-refundable. But if the event is cancelled due to weather becoming dangerous, the cost for the movie will be refundable ($22pp). If you booked a hamper it means that you will receive a portion of your ticket price ($44) back but your hamper can't be cancelled. You will need to come and collect it from the Garden Restaurant (Melaleuca House).

We encourage you to pack smart and bring something to keep warm and dry, just in case. The temperature can drop at night, especially in the Garden. Ponchos, blankets and plastic picnic rugs are always a good option.

How and when will I find out about a cancellation?

We will be monitoring ground conditions, and checking the weather radar (please bear in mind that conditions on site may differ to what you are experiencing at home). We will try to cancel as early as possible, but the decision is rarely made before 4:30pm. Since the weather can turn unexpectedly, cancellations may need to occur at any time up to or during the screening.

In the rare event that the event is cancelled, ticket holders will receive an SMS and an EMAIL, and we will update the event listing on our WEBSITE and we will post a notification on FACEBOOK. In addition, SIGNAGE will be erected on site. Please assume the session is going ahead, unless you receive the official notification. If you decide not to attend without receiving notice, your tickets will be forfeited.
