The simplest answer to this question is “just ask!" When looking for a function venue, contact us and we will look at all possible options. 

While RAC Arena is primarily based around confirming touring events to ensure that Western Australia has the best opportunity to secure world-class entertainment, functions that are non-touring related can be offered dates on a case-by-case basis, working around the event calendar.

Wedding receptions and private functions can be held at RAC Arena with the exception of 18th and 21st Birthday celebrations, pending availability.

After receiving your enquiry, one of our experienced Sales Coordinators will be in touch via email or phone to discuss the details of your function. A proposal is then sent to you for consideration and if you would like to proceed with your booking, the booking correspondence will follow. Once a deposit and signed booking correspondence is received by us we will then commence coordinating your function with you.

The deposit is an estimate of 50% of the total worth of the event. The payment is requested within 14 days of receiving the booking correspondence.

Written notice is required for all function cancellations, with the period of notice provided determining the necessary cancellation fees and charges. In most cases we will offer you the opportunity to select an alternative date to which we will roll the deposit.
