Cocktail Hour is a premium event free to Ipswich Libraries members and is held at Ipswich Central Library and Springfield Central Library.

Cocktail Hour is where we share the remarkable stories of a diverse range of high profile speakers and celebrate their achievements.


Cocktail Hour Random Ticket Draw

Library members can enter their details online, in person or over the phone for a period of seven days to enter the random draw for tickets to Cocktail Hour. This ensures everyone has an equal chance to secure tickets to this very popular event. After the entry period has closed, a random draw is conducted to allocate tickets.

There is one valid entry only per library member 18 years and over. Duplicate entries will not be included in the ticket draw. 

Entry into the draw does not guarantee a ticket.

If you are successful in securing tickets in the random draw, you will then be offered a maximum of two tickets and invited to complete the registration process within seven days to confirm your attendance.  If you do not register within the time frame your tickets will be reallocated.
