Make your event a work of art in the Academy Galleries, pre-dressed with impressive art exhibitions that are rotated on a 4–6 week basis. This contemporary setting is open, spacious and well-lit, catering for events of up to 300 people.

The Academy Galleries are located on Wellington’s waterfront, across Queens Square from the TSB Bank Arena and Auditorium — making this a wonderful venue for breakfasts, cocktails, and hosting before or after shows.
