Venue Hire

Looking for somewhere to hold small business conferences, wedding receptions, wedding anniversary celebrations or birthday parties, Howick Little Theatre's two function rooms are available for room hire. These rooms are ideal venues for workshops, "away days" and training days. Both rooms are air-conditioned, but have opening windows, and come with a large portable whiteboard. The Blue Room, which is larger, also has a sunny deck on one side. The 110-seat flexiform theatre is also available for limited use. Please note that we do not hire the facilities for 21st birthday or engagement parties.

  • Lots of free and easy parking.
  • Readily accessible for the disabled, with mobility parking spaces right outside the door.
  • Reasonable hire rates, either casual or regular.
  • Full kitchen facilities.
  • Licenced bar.
