Registration and Tickets

Free lecture series

The majority of Sydney Ideas events are free and open to all, with online registration requested. Simply follow the links on each page. An e-reminder is sent one day before each event to those who have registered.

Seating at these events is unreserved and doors are open 15 minutes prior to the lecture start.

If an event is full we will close registrations and mention this on the registration page. We do not have waiting lists but often have spare seats on the night due to late cancellations. If you could not register and would like to attend, you are welcome to join a stand-by queue at the venue.
