Melbourne Cabaret Limited does not directly sell tickets to events. Tickets to events are sold through the operator of the hosting venue and their ticketing providers.
Melbourne Cabaret Limited provides website links to these venues for the purpose of purchasing tickets. At the point of being directed to these websites, you, as a purchaser, will be subject to the terms and conditions of that respective website and its relevant ticketing policy.

7.2. Licence; Ejection and Cancellation; No Redemption Value

We reserve the right, without refund of any amount paid, to refuse admission to, or eject, any person whose conduct management deems disorderly, who uses vulgar or abusive language or who fails to comply with our reasonable requests.
