The Ward at the Wellington SPCA - Venue for hire


Wellington Central, event space

The Ward is part of an extraordinary function centre with fascinating history, architectural charm, modern facilities and with the explicit purpose to provide funds for the Wellington SPCA, all in a glorious building on the slopes of Mt Victoria in Central Wellington.

This is a dedicated wing of Wellington’s restored Old Fever Hospital, the other part of the building houses the offices, work and hospital of the Wellington SPCA.  The space is scrubbed and polished, and while it still has the bones of the hospital with some of the original tiles and woodwork visible, the wide doorways, high ceilings and abundance of natural light give it a very welcoming  feel. Ghosts? Maybe. Certainly lots of lively animals in the gardens to pet during break times.

The Ward is a neat, long room, with white walls, regular tall windows and a polished wooden floor.  It can be dressed up for a wedding or party, or kept smarty corporate. There are various additional rooms in the building for break out spaces.

Whiteboard, screen and WIFI are included, other AV equipment may be ordered.

Other rooms in the building for hire include The Cafe (60 people), The Sunroom (30)  and The Classroom (30).

There is free parking on the street.

In hiring The Ward you not only provide a beautiful venue for your guests, you also directly contribute to a very good cause.  It does help make the day feel special.
