Founded in 1867, Wellington College is located in close proximity to the centre of downtown Wellington. Its buildings are positioned in beautifully kept grounds and lawns offering a truly unique and tranquil setting. With the spectacular backdrop of the school buildings and large green fields, it is hard to find a more accessible venue that offers you picturesque space in a city centre location.
Create your event in one of Wellington College’s five venues. Everything you need for your event from start to finish can be catered for in one place. Your guests can arrive and make use of the free and safe onsite parking with no need to worry about a thing for the rest of the day or evening. Venue hire at Wellington College includes extensive and free parking plus tables and chairs.
A major building project was completed just recently [official opening is 5 November], and the new Alan Gibbs Centre is used to host a number of private events, weddings and corporate functions. The AGC is a unique and beautiful space which lends itself to any theme or idea you may have in mind, while keeping the traditionalist aspect of the venue. Areas adjacent, including the courtyard, can cater for pre-dinner drinks. Upstairs, the Alan Gibbs Annex is a venue that can also cater for pre-dinner drinks, cocktail parties and exhibitions.
Our Brierley Theatre [catering for 250 dining guests] have seen many, many memorable events over the years. The adjacent Firth Hall is ideal for pre-dinner drinks or hired on its own for 100 dining guests. Our Pavilion overlooks the grounds and views towards the city and is perfect for smaller, intimate events.
We are able to comfortably cater for 40 to 400 people for dining and up to 1500 for a variety of events, concerts, performances and receptions. The College has three preferred and locally renowned caterers and all offer tailored menus to suit every requirement; so sit back and enjoy your occasion with everything taken care of for you.
