Do I need to buy tickets?



We do not recommend you just 'rock-up' on the day as the space is limited. You can purchase tickets here: $10 for one day, $15 for two days.

Are there any extra costs?

The Legends Happy Hour is courtesy of Hyundai, but you will need to pay for Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch yourself, directly to the Bistro at the Jamberoo Pub, or wherever you choose to eat in Jamberoo.

What do I do when I get there?

Please head straight to the Johnny Warren Football Museum at the back of the Pub and register. 

Will I get a chance to ask any questions of the guests?

Of course! As well as the breaks, each session will also include the opportunity for questions from the floor - no exceptions. We only ask that you say who you are, refrain from profanity, and are courteous at all times. 

Is there a program?

Yes! As well as the website here, you can download our guidebook App which has the program, information about the speakers, links to social media and more. It's also a way of us keeping in touch with you over the Festival. (Link to be provided for 2020). 

Is there a hashtag?

Of course! #FWF20

Do I need to book accommodation?
