Te Auaha - Tapere Nui (Big Theatre)

We’re stoked to have a new Wellington venue on offer this year – Te Auaha is a brand new building in a prime spot on the corner of Cuba and Dixon Streets and is home to multiple fabulous venues including two theatres – Tapere Nui (Big Theatre) and Tapere Iti (Little Theatre)

There’s a brilliant line up of comedy for Festival at Te Auaha, with top Kiwi talent as well as world-famous international comedians.  Tapere Nui is the ‘Big Theatre’ of Te Auaha, and home to some of the biggest comedy headliners in Wellington this Festival.

As well as being Wellington’s hottest new venue, Te Auaha NZ Institute of Creativity is a world-class tertiary education institution delivering leading programmes in creativity and innovation, creating a vibrant creative hub in the heart of the city. Make sure you make it to a show at Te Auaha, it’s a must see!
