The Events Centre

Initially developed in the 1930’s to host harness racing events, Addington has expanded its facilities over the decades and is today one of the city’s leading venues.

Situated just minutes from the Christchurch CBD the size and scope of our facilities allows us to accommodate trade shows, expos, conferences, meetings, dinners, weddings and more. With over seven individual venue choices we have the facilities and expertise to meet your needs. Whether it is an intimate gathering or a larger event, Addington has something for you.

Our professional event management service, superior in-house catering and experienced technical production team all add up to a recipe for success.

Our aim is to make your experience easy, offer excellent value for money, a flexible approach and all the expertise you need to ensure your event runs smoothly.

Whatever the nature of your event, we’ll make it one to remember.


We regularly use Addington Events Centre for courses and functions
and are always impressed with the cleanliness of the venue,
the friendliness of the staff and their willing, helpful attitude.
