The Courtyard

The courtyard is Artworks Precinct’s shared space between our neighbours: the beautifully-designed Waiheke Library, the Art Gallery, the Cinema, the Adult Education Centre, and Waiheke’s own ‘Ajadz’ Indian restaurant. This open space offers a great atmosphere day and night and hosts diverse events.


The Pinter Bar and Foyer

This area is the first sight walking into our theatre. It’s modern, spacious and functional. A multi-purpose space , where you can hold meetings, run small shows or for guests to mingle, enjoy a drink and sit comfortably before the show.

Our ticketing service provides you with a great team of trained volunteers who will meet & greet your audience and sell them tickets to your show!

A bar service is available* at no extra cost and can open an hour before your starting time. Bar and drinks menu sent on request.

Foyer – 40 standing, 20 seated

And, if you are not a Waihekean, here’s how to find us

You are probably wondering where the theatre is? When you arrive to Waiheke and get off the ferry at Matiatia, you can jump on a bus or walk. The walk only takes around 15 minutes. No rush. And the bus stops right outside and takes literally 5 mins (just ask for Artworks). How convenient! We are right behind our flash Library. Come up the steps and you will see our lovely theatre with a big pink W sign. Come in for a coffee, tea and yummy treats and see what shows and classes we have on offer. Relax on the couches or play the baby grand in the foyer (a cosy place for pre-show drinkies, small meetings or even performances).
