Tickets may be reserved for up to 14 days without payment. All payments must be finalised at least seven days prior to the Festival. If payment is not received for your reservation, this will result in automatic cancellation of your booking and tickets will be released. Should an author withdraw due to COVID-19 disruptions, please note they will be substituted and no refund will be applicable.


There is no cloakroom facility at Storyfest Out West. We encourage students to bring a small carry bag, as some venues have limited access for school bags. Valuables should be left at home, and lost property can be collected from the Information Booth at the Festival.
