St James Theatre is currently closed for scheduled strengthening and refurbishment work, with plans to reopen in late 2020.
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.
The First Floor Gallery, Hospitality Suite and The Foyer all offer additional space for any auditorium event, or more intimate elegant spaces for meetings, cocktails and hosting. Whatever the occasion, the St James Theatre offers a unique and opulent venue that will wow your guests.
The Mojo St James cafe opens into the Foyer on the ground floor, so you can add a premium coffee experience to your large event.
