CAN I GO TO GTM?

GTM is a licenced all ages event, however, we do recommend 16+. If you are under 16, we are still more than happy for you to come along, as long as you’ve cleared it with your parents.

Here are some tips from us:

  • Come with a good group of friends
  • Set up meeting points at the start of the day in case you get separated
  • We also recommend you write down two friends’ numbers on your arm or on a piece of paper for your pocket/bag – best to include the number of one of your friends at the event and one adult who can help you out from home
  • Most importantly, look after each other

 

We are expecting a big excited crowd so GTM is not the best environment for small children, toddlers and infants.

NOTE TO PARENTS It’s up to you to consider whether the event is appropriate for your child. If you would like to discuss this with someone from our office please get in touch with us via: moo@gtm.net.au
