Home of the Royal New Zealand Ballet and the New Zealand Opera, the St James Theatre is the  jewel in the crown of Wellington's flourishing theatre scene. More than just a venue for performing arts - although it plays host to a variety of dance, drama, opera, comedy and cabaret every year - the theatre’s proscenium arch and historic decorative interior also make for a unique and memorable venue for functions, conferences and onstage dinners.

Host your guests on the spacious stage for an unforgettable onstage dining experiences and theatrical conference environments, adding dramatic flair to the occasion.

Refurbished in the late 1990s, the St James Theatre accents its old-world glamour with modern technology.
