New Booking System for 2016 now available.

Now you can check the Availability of the DCA Studio, Chambers Crescent Theatre and the Telecentro and make a tentative booking all on your own account.

  • If a suitable time is available, select the time on the Calendar to create a tentative booking.
    (This must include sufficient time for set up and clean up as others may book any times not allocated. Your selection will prevent other people from selecting that time so it must be confirmed with the payment of a deposit within 72 hours or the booking will lapse.)
  • Complete the Hire Agreement and Membership forms as required.
  • Arrange for the completed forms and deposit to be provided to DCA.
    ($50 deposit required for booking, full payment for key)
  • The booking will be confirmed and a time for collection of a key arranged when this is complete.
  • Regular key holders will be invoiced monthly.
