About this space

The ONEONESIX space has been a community hub for over 100 years. A community-operated space open for original, innovative and unique forms of sharing, dialogue, performance, arts practice, citizen media, physical arts, and anything you might dream of since 2015. Every week the space is filled with regular activities for young and old, alongside regularly hosting touring and local theatre work, musicians, public talks, all kinds of performances, and the odd banquet.

The hall is the main performance and event area. It is a multipurpose space with a beautiful old wooden floor, tall windows, lighting rig, and floor-to-ceiling blackout theatre curtains that turn the place into a lush canvas for events, hui and workshops. At 16m x 11m x 4.5m lighting rig height, it is ideal for events hosting up to 128 people, or for when lots of movement and space is required. A selection of timber rostra can be used to make seating blocks and stages, with 80 chairs, lots of cushions, and a lectern available for use with the hire.

The foyer is comfy & eclectic with lots of casual seating. It's a great space to host your guests before a show or make it the bar and feeding area for a party or celebration. The foyer is adjacent to a kitchen with a serving hatch.

The mezzanine is an extra nook above our foyer, which is great for a breakout space, extra seating for guests or just an extension of the foyer.

The backroom is a private space that joins into the foyer area. It's light and flexible with white walls and a carpeted floor. It can be a green room, rehearsal space or breakout area for your event.

What's included: Wifi, 120 chairs, cushions & sofas, use of the fully equipped kitchen is available for self or external caterers. It has hot water, an oven, microwave and a fridge. There is crockery and cutlery for about 50 people.

Please note: We have a community radio station based at ONEONESIX. DJs may arrive to broadcast their show during your booking. All members understand the kaupapa of the space as an event and performance venue. The radio room is soundproofed and located adjacent to the foyer. We also run a small coffee shop located in the entrance way of the building. Lovey’s is open to the public on weekdays 9am - 12:30pm. The courtyard and foyer is occasionally used by customers as a seating area. If your booking time is within Lovey’s opening hours and you have booked the whole venue we will close the foyer to customers but will remain serving takeaways. Please utilise the red curtains at the hall entrance and close for your privacy.
