A community centre with great spaces that celebrate the many different people and cultures living in and around our diverse and colourful community. We have just been informed by Council that we will need to close the centre for February and March 2024 for the roof to be totally replaced. this means that the only bookings we can take over that period are for Armanasco House.

You may serve but not sell alcohol on our premises. If you wish to sell alcohol, you must procure a licence from Auckland Council and provide proof of this to us.

Using the Hall

You are welcome to decorate the hall, bring in whatever furniture or equipment you need for your event and configure the space how you would like. It’s perfect for parties, as you can really make the space your own. You can use blu-tac or sellotape, but please make sure this is fully removed. No pins or nails please. You must book enough time to decorate and clear down the hall after use. This is why we provide the 1pm- midnight block booking at an affordable rate, so that you and any suppliers have plenty of time to set up.

Music & Sound

You are welcome to play music as part of your booking. The sound needs to be turned down after 11pm and off by midnight due to neighbourhood noise regulation.


During our normal office hours (Mon-Fri 9am-3.30pm and evenings by appointment only), someone on reception will be available to let you into the hall. If your booking is outside of these times, you can pick up a key in advance from reception.
