Christchurch

Located in the heart of Ōtautahi Christchurch, The Arts Centre is an Aotearoa New Zealand landmark that provides you with a charming heritage setting.



A UNESCO award-winning heritage building with proven acoustics and modern heating, lighting and sound, Great Hall is a Christchurch venue like no other.

The window is dedicated to the memory of all staff and students who served in WWI. Featuring an open fireplace, large projection screen and lighting rig, wheelchair access, a kitchenette/green room, and renowned for excellent acoustics, The Great Hall provides outstanding photo opportunities and a prime central city location for your next event. Whether you're looking to host a gala dinner, cocktail party or more, this airy venue is filled with light and more than enough space, flexibly adhering to every function.
