Hawke’s Bay has it all: wonderful weather, picturesque vineyard landscapes, golden sand beaches and vibrant cities. The Jewel in this region’s crown is the newly refurbished Toitoi - Arts & Events Centre in Hastings, which opens for bookings from March.
With the 105-year-old Opera House at its heart, Toitoi offers a unique blend of awe-inspiring heritage architecture and modern technology. It truly is a venue unlike any other.
Located in Hastings CBD, Toitoi is situated for both convenience and accessibility. We have a wide range of venue spaces, including our newly renovated Functions on Hastings space, which is completely indoors and can hold large banquets, expos and events. The Opera House itself is one of the top lyric theatres in Australasia and can be used as a plenary or for a small banquet on stage.
We have a number of other venue spaces including meeting rooms and cutting-edge, architecturally designed display and event areas. The second stage of the refurbishment, focusing on the neighbouring heritage Municipal Building, will be complete in early 2022 and offers a ballroom, business centres and additional fit-for-purpose meeting rooms.
At Toitoi we understand that your business is our business. From the moment you book your conference, meeting or dinner, we will work collaboratively with you to create a bespoke total event solution that exceeds your expectations and ensures all your goals are met.
The Toitoi team are committed to going the extra mile – our dedicated and experienced technical operations, catering and event co-ordination teams will pay attention to every detail. No request is too big, small or strange, as our creative thinking will ensure you get a solution that is uniquely tailored to your needs.
