Please note that the St James Theatre is currently closed for scheduled strengthening and refurbishment work.

Managed by Venues Wellington, the St James Theatre is the Jewel in the crown of Wellington’s flourishing theatre scene.

The St James Theatre is the ideal performance space for dance, opera, musicals and cabaret. Through its unique functions and meetings environment, it has become a thriving events venue since the refurbishment in the late 1990s. To add a sense of grandeur, frame your presentation on stage or use this same setting to host a memorable social event. The St James Theatre adds a touch of theatrical flair to any business event.  

The Mojo St James cafe opens into the Foyer on the ground floor, so you can add a premium coffee experience to your large event.
