Nau Mai, Haere Mai! Welcome to the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre
The Newtown Community and Cultural Centre was established in 1977. The centre is located on the corner of Colombo and Rintoul Streets, just opposite the old Salvation Army Family Store. Its central location in the heart of Newtown makes it the perfect venue for the wide range of classes, activities and events we have on offer. Check out the ‘Weekly Timetable’ section of this website for more info!
Need to hire a venue?
The Community Centre has a theatre, a dance hall, and meeting rooms available for casual or regular hire at competitive rates. We also manage the Newtown Hall on Daniell St (opposite the Mediterranean Food Warehouse), with full kitchen and bathroom facilities, this stand-alone hall is the ideal venue for classes, meetings, and your next special event.
We have had our third workshop with the architects WSP Opus on 27th October. At this workshop people were able to have their say on the further developed concept designs.
If you missed the workshop, you can view the designs here.
If you need a refresh on the project, you can see a wee history on our website here. In short, Wellington City Council are carrying out $3.4m in upgrades to the three buildings, NCCC, Network Newtown and Newtown Hall on Daniell St.
