WELCOME | HAERE MAI

Warkworth Town Hall has been a centre of community life for Warkworth, Kaipara & the Matakana Coast for over 100 years.

The recently renovated hall and facilities are available for everyone in the Mahurangi community to hire. We hope to see you soon.

In the Entranceway to Warkworth Town Hall stands an octagonal memorial to the members of our local community who fought in the Great Wars.

It lists the towns and villages in our community whose men & women ‘signed up’, were all farewelled and some welcomed home – at Warkworth Town Hall.

100 years on, the residents and families of these same communities have contributed to the restoration of this important local building, through their rates and donations.

facilities for hire

You can hire a range of newly refurbished rooms of different sizes for events large and small – from the main hall & stage which holds 125 people to the dress circle and our mezzanine conference room, which is ideal for meetings, auctions & boardroom lunches. There’s also a new kitchen for self-catering and a lift for disabled access.

support services

We can offer a variety of support options to help plan your event, promote it here on the website and on our social media. We can give advice about event planners, alcohol licences, access and support staff. We can even provide caterers – for everything from pies & canapés to a boardroom lunch or a wedding banquet.

Event Promotion
Warkworth Town Hall will post your event on the website and facebook page if requested. We can also supply design and marketing services or advice if you want to promote the event even further.

You can arrange these independently, just contact us – info@warkworthtownhall.nz 

Venue Access
Access for hirers is through a code which you are given at the time of booking. If you lose your code or cannot get access there is a phone number on the door, through which you can be granted remote access. Our facilities staff can assist if all else fails!
Event Catering

You can use your own caterer or our in house caterer for events of any size.

There is also a fully-equipped kitchen available for hire, where you can arrange your own refreshments.

Alcohol Licensing

Private events where alcohol is consumed but not sold and where the event is not open to the public do not require a licence.

Public events – and where alcohol is purchased, require a temporary licence which you will need to apply for. We can help guide you through this process.

Occupational Safety & Health
Hirers are responsible for the safe running of the event they have organised and will need to appoint a Safety Rep. On this website you will find information about the OSH Requirements – and our facility co-ordinators will explain it to you in person.

This website will soon feature more information about the OSH
