Event Seating, Weather, Alcohol and other FAQs

Event Seating

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).

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.

Accessibility

The Pop Up Park has a flat surface, with entry from Station Place. From Friday through to Sunday, 10 January – 2 February, a portable accessible toilet will be located nearby. Outside of these dates, the nearest accessible toilets are located at Werribee Train station and on the corner of Watton and Bridge Street.

We welcome visitors with assistance animals certified by a registered authority.

Weather

Friday Night Live, Outdoor Cinema and Sunday Funday 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.

Pets

Event Umbrellas

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.

Outdoor Cinema Screen

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 6pm. The screen is also set above the ground for improved viewing.
