Up Close with Simon O’Neill – A Fundraiser for the DSO 

Up Close with Simon O’Neill – Cancelled
The DSO’s fundraiser ‘Up Close with Simon O’Neill’ is also not able to go ahead as scheduled. The main reason for this is because Simon O’Neill is based in Auckland and, because of COVID-19 and the Level 3 restrictions currently in force for Auckland, he is therefore not able to travel to Dunedin.
– If you bought your tickets through Eventfinda, they will be in touch with you soon to confirm their particular refund process.
– If you bought your tickets at the Regent Theatre, please either go to the Regent Theatre or contact them directly to make arrangements for your refund.
