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 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.
The WSP Opus Concept Designs are out! They've taken your feedback from the last year and a half of consultation processes and put together some ideas we hope you'll like for upgrades to the Newtown Community Centre, Network Newtown & Newtown Hall. We had a workshop on Saturday 8th September to present the ideas, but if you didn't get a chance to make it, you can view the designs here.
Nothing is set in stone yet (but it will be soon), so if you'd like to let us know your thoughts, please send them in! You can email email@example.com. Please do this by 5pm on Monday 8th October to allow the architects to incorporate your feedback.
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.
