Catering & Alcohol

You are welcome to self cater or use external caterers in our hall & kitchenette space. The kitchen space has a small fridge, microwave, pie warmer, hot water boiler and washing-up sink.

There are no utensils, pans, crockery, cutlery or glassware provided as part of the hall hire. You or your caterers will need to bring in everything you wish to use to cater your event. The kitchen must be cleaned and left as you found it. Any clean up or prep time must be included in your hireage. All rubbish must be removed. 

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 - check out the photos to see ideas. 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. We welcome wedding celebrations from all faiths and partnerships. Please note you cannot have a lit flame as part of the ceremony due to insurance restrictions. 

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.

The hall is wheelchair accessible, and there are wheel chair accessible toilets.
