Sound good? Come nightfall, watch this heritage beauty spring to life as a favoured venue for cabaret, rock n’ roll, DJs, comedy festivals, globally renowned speakers and orchestras. Let live melodies wash over you in the aptly named Great Hall, a musical setting made magical with stained-glass windows and dazzling chandeliers.
For a more intimate setting, you can easily close your eyes and imagine you’re in the front row of the 431-seat Concert Chamber – popular for cabaret, chamber music and children’s theatre.
In the Great Hall look out for New Zealand’s largest concert organ, a musical and visual spectacle with more than 5000 pipes waiting to sing. Built in 1911, it’s considered a national treasure that is even protected by NZ law.
