Event Seating, Weather, Alcohol and other FAQs
The Pop Up Park has a limited number of deck chairs and beanbags provided. Friday Night Live and the Outdoor Cinema sessions may attract large crowds, with visitors encouraged to bring along their picnic blankets or low-backed chairs or settle in on the grass (please try to avoid high-backed camp chairs if you can help it).
Seating is not allocated so please keep your neighbours and their view in mind and help us keep the vibe of this free event fun and friendly.
During Friday Night Live concerts, you’ll find there’s a whole lot of fun and dancing front of stage, especially as the night wears on, with people able to move in and out of the space. You may like to think about what you’re keen to do during the night, when you settle in.
Friday Night Live, Outdoor Cinema and Street Food Sundays are all-weather events and will go ahead in most weather conditions. Cancellations will only be considered if the conditions present a risk to the safety of visitors and staff and will be published via www.facebook/werribeecitycentre.
Remember to bring sunscreen, a hat, cold water and something to keep you warm at night when the temperature drops. There is a free drinking water fountain in Station Place.
The large park umbrellas are fixed into the ground to provide stable and secure shade during the Pop Up Park season and remain in place during large events.
During Friday Night Live concerts, umbrellas will be tied down before the headline act, to keep you shaded for as long as possible and maximise viewing.
From Friday through to Sunday there are additional portable toilets located just across the road from the Pop Up Park, on the corner of Watton St and Duncans Road.
You’ll also find public toilets in Werribee Train Station and on the corner of Watton and Bridge Street.
A licensed bar will operate during Friday Night Live but at all other times, the Pop Up Park is an alcohol-free zone.
BYO alcohol is not permitted.
Smoking is not permitted in the Pop Up Park.

The Outdoor Cinema uses an LED screen (rather than an inflatable screen) which means we can screen movies during daylight, at the family-friendly time of 5pm. The screen is also set above the ground for improved viewing.
Friday Night Live
Bring a picnic blanket and settle in for the summer, with all-ages concerts every Friday night including major headline acts and local talent.
