Venue Hire

MTG Hawke's Bay has a number of unique venue hire spaces available for events, meetings, conferences and private functions.

The Century Theatre and Theatre Foyer are up and running and available for hire. The museum and galleries are still undergoing work and are unavailable at this stage.

Cocktail parties, concerts, conferences and more...

MTG has a concert theatre, foyer and outdoor deck, an education suite, the main foyer and a range of gallery spaces available to suit every event requirement.

The light-filled main foyer and galleries overlook Napier's Soundshell and gardens, the Pacific Ocean and the nearby historic Art Deco Masonic Hotel. Centrally located, it's the ideal space for a cocktail function or product launch.

The MTG Century Theatre is Hawke’s Bay’s premier mid-sized venue ideal for a conference, launch, lecture or a film, music or theatrical event. The theatre was  designed with chamber music concerts in mind and has a Steinway piano available. It has superb acoustics, air-conditioning and tiered seating for 330 and is host to both national and international conferences that require an auditorium, foyer and technical support. 

The MTG galleries and foyer spaces are open to the public 364 days of the year - every day except Christmas Day. Functions in these spaces can be booked for hire outside normal opening hours of 9am to 5pm. The education suite is also available after 5pm and on weekends.

The MTG team looks forward to working closely with you to ensure your conference, meeting or event is a success.
