Enquiries

With restrictions easing we are excited to welcome you and your guests back for events at the Gallery. As you can imagine with physical distancing measures and government restrictions on gatherings, capacity is reduced at the moment to ensure all visitors and our staff are safe.

If you have any questions about these capacities and hosting your event at the Gallery please complete the enquiry form below or contact the events coordinator at npgevents@npg.gov.au.

Booking requests

Booking requests are held for seven days. After that, we may cancel or replace the booking.

When you confirm a booking, we email you a contract to sign. A 50% deposit is required within two weeks of the release of your contract. If we do not receive the deposit within that timeframe, we may re-book the venue.

All the details of your event must be confirmed at least two weeks prior to the event.
