Located in the heart of the city, Christchurch Town Hall is one of the City’s most recognisable pieces of architecture and undoubtedly one of New Zealand’s premier performance and event venues.

Following a significant upgrade and overall refurbishment, this world-class venue offers your event functional options and a dramatic backdrop for gala dinners, cocktail functions and special events. Modern technologies have been seamlessly integrated alongside iconic features making this world-class venue a very versatile and special space for your event.

The Douglas Lilburn Auditorium has been reinstated to its world renowned status with additional technology and new backstage configurations making this space a favourite for many event organisers. Comfortably seating 2,250, the acoustics are considered to be amongst the best in the world, making this space ideal for everything from conferences and seminars to rock concerts and classical music.

Modernisation of the seating configurations in both the Douglas Lilburn Auditorium and the James Hay Theatre allow the spaces to transform into spectacular settings for gala dinners, cocktail receptions and other special events. The James Hay Theatre seats 750 and now offers retractable seating allowing for a mix of seated and standing events, including concerts and plenary sessions.

The Victoria, Limes and Avon Rooms enhance your options further with capacities up to 500. With striking wooden features throughout, each room is as unique as the other and historic elements now sit seamlessly alongside additions such as integrated technology and automatic blinds. The Limes and Avon Rooms are enhanced further with their riverside and provide stunning and unrivalled backdrops for your event. For dinners and cocktail receptions to product launches, breakout spaces and presentations, these rooms can work together or as a standalone space to create more amazing experiences for all your guests.
