  • Return booking form on line via Booking Form by Friday 1 September 2023 to ensure inclusion.
  • Every effort will be made to satisfy demand. Flexibility may be required regarding dates.
  • AOTNZ will provide transport, accommodation, artists’ daily allowance, promotional material, technical equipment, tour management and national/regional media exposure.
  • We strongly recommend that presenters use social media and the printed material we provide to initiate a promotional campaign. It is your responsibility to forward media releases and photographs to local media. Supplied promotional material should not be modified in any way as this may contravene AOTNZ design standards and damage the brand.
  • A venue could be a theatre, community hall, marae, school hall, church, hotel, cafe, private home, art gallery or acoustically suitable place.
  • In exceptional circumstances fees may be negotiated to take into account limited population, after agreement with artist or group.
  • As the presenter, you will be expected to provide the venue, the agreed fee (or 70% of gross income after reasonable costs, whichever is greater*) *reasonable costs include venue hire, publicity, programmes, front of house staff (where appropriate), not AOT agreed fee, bar costs or food. Creative Communities Scheme funds through local authority from CNZ are available for all costs incurred except AOTNZ fees, and a brief report detailing ticket price, response to show and attendance.
  • There is no cancellation fee outside four weeks of the commencement of the tour. However, within four weeks, a cancellation will require payment of a 100% penalty fee.
  • All fees are exclusive of GST.
  • Please call Steve Thomas at AOTNZ, at any stage, to clarify details of any arrangements.
