Rotary Foyer

The intimacy of the Rotary Foyer is the perfect setting for any event, from cocktail parties and banquets to weddings and formal ceremonies.

The glass and wooden façades and natural river stones evoke the natural environment of the Hutt Valley, with a view to the gardens and courtyard outside. Elegant red tiled walls compliment the timber floors and the galleries.

With a constantly changing programme of traditional and contemporary art, the foyer is a perfect space for your special event and a truly memorable evening for your guests.

The foyer allows up to 150 guests for cocktails or 80 people seated, depending on stage and dance-floor requirements.

The foyer can be hired separately or together with other spaces such as the theatre, hall or café. Hire of all equipment such as linen, cutlery and crockery and bar equipment is managed by the caterer hire or by Whirinaki Whare Taonga staff on request.

One of the special features in the foyer is a Maori carving, Te Manawa, by local carver, Dave Te Hira.

Capacity 80 seated theatre style, 150 standing with both galleries open.

The Rotary Foyer is available between 6am to 9am and after 4pm, 7 days a week
