BATS is temporarily relocating to the corner of Cuba and Dixon Street (the old Big Kumara) while 1 Kent Terrace Earthquake strengthening and renovations take place at the 1 Kent Terrace home.
The heart of New Zealand theatre, BATS provides audiences with an exciting, accessible, and unpredictable live theatre experience almost every night of the year.
Located in the Courtenay Quarter entertainment precinct, BATS encompasses an intimate auditorium and two cosy bars, providing the perfect night out in downtown Wellington.
With a commitment to New Zealand productions, BATS has spear-headed the development of new practitioners and innovative theatre since 1989. As the birthplace of cutting-edge, vital, and internationally acclaimed shows and artists, audiences are given the opportunity to 'see it here first'.
BATS plays host to key festivals throughout the year including Fringe NZ, The NZ International Comedy Festival, Dance Your Socks Off Festival, The Young and Hungry Festival of Plays as well as STAB - a theatre revolution.
