Smith’s has reopened and we are keen to once again to provide a home for Canberra’s creative community. We’re currently restricted to 24 people in the Band Room, 15 in the Bar and 20 or so outside. We’re keen to use the break as a bit of refresh and thus are keen to canvas people’s ideas for using the various spaces, inside, out and the surrounds, at all times of the day and night. We are currently open from midday to 8pm every day, but we’re happy to extend those hours to allow for activities that suit.

One concept we have is for a performance to be repeated during the night to a different audience each time. In this manner up to 72 tickets could be sold. Below we use the example of a band, but similar could apply to any type of show, on a case by case basis.

We look forward to seeing you all and to hearing your stories, and your ideas for excellent crazy things you’d like to do here.


Band plays two/three 45-60 minute sets to two/three separate crowds of 24 people, pricing at $15+ per ticket depending on the draw of the act, with an all-night, three set ticket discounted by about 20% on the price of three tickets (ie.$20 for one set, $50 for three). We're going to continue with a 70/30 deal but apply a minimum $200 production/door service fee. We can also have a donation ticket available for patrons who can't make it to the show but who would like to send some goodwill the artists’ way. 

An example of set times would be:

Set One – 7-8pm
Set Two – 8.30-9.30pm
Set Three – 10-11pm
