Perth Festival 2021 Early Release for Schools

We’ve released a select number of events early to make it easier for schools to book Perth Festival 2021. To request a copy of the early release schools brochure, please email us.

Booking School Group Tickets & Workshops

The first step in booking tickets for your school group is to submit a Ticket Request Form.

See below for FAQs.

Literature & Ideas for Secondary Schools

Join us over two days to hear keynote addresses from some of Perth’s most exciting literary talents, Craig Silvey, Yuot A Alaak and Sophie McNeill. With sessions specifically targeting both middle and upper school English, this is an unmissable opportunity for students to engage with a range of texts: media, fiction and non-fiction. 

Exploring the relationships between conventions and language (and how they change across genre with regards to audience and purpose), the authors will give fascinating insight into their writing process.  

Find out more here.

Ticket requests will be processed within 10 working days, and you will be contacted by Perth Festival or the producing company once they have been processed.

Please note that bookings are not guaranteed until confirmed by Perth Festival.

School Group Tickets have limited capacity and are subject to availability. Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that you will get into the shows you want.

The Ticket Request Form asks you to list multiple dates that you will be able to attend. This gives us the best chance to find a performance that works for you.

In the instance that the discounted Schools Tickets have run out for all your preferred performances, our Ticketing Team may be able to arrange tickets for your group at Concession prices. In this instance, we will let you know your options before the booking is processed.


Once our Ticketing Team has processed your Ticket Request Form, we will send you an invoice for payment.

Tickets must be paid for no later than Monday 14 December 2020.

For tickets booked after this date, payment will be due 7 days after your booking has been processed.

Any tickets not paid for within these timeframes will be released for sale to the general public.


All ticket purchases are final and shall not be refunded, except as required by law or in accordance with the Live Performance Australia (LPA) Ticketing Code of Practice or as otherwise specified by Perth Festival.

Full Ticketing Terms & Conditions can be found here.

The Ticket Request Form asks you to provide details of anyone in your group who has access needs, to ensure we are best able to support your attendance.

Please contact Perth Festival on 6488 8616 if you require any further information.

Perth Festival presents world class events that showcase the very best artistry and interpretations of text.

We believe that an excursion to a Perth Festival event has the potential to develop students:

  • Ability to connect with curriculum content in new ways
  • Confidence in becoming innovative and creative artists and thinkers
  • Skills to critically engage with texts from Australia and other cultures
  • Engagement with a variety of learning styles
  • Communication skills, methodologies and awareness
  • Empathy and self-awareness to explore, depict and celebrate the human experience
  • Comprehension of texts through listening and viewing
  • Knowledge of how visual information contributes to the meanings created in texts
  • Artistic, aesthetic and cultural appreciation of art forms from past and contemporary contexts, including cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary events
  • Respect for, and knowledge of, the diverse purposes, traditions, histories and cultures of art making and critical response
  • Reflection on thinking and processes
  • Knowledge of methods used to apply and control elements, skills, techniques, processes, forms and styles of art making
  • Skills and techniques to actively analyse and create art
