Perfect for anything from arts, crafts or hobbies groups, senior’s recreation, travel clubs,  or yoga, pilates, meditation or educational groups seeking a relaxing venue in idyllic Hagley Park.


We are centrally located and within walking distance of the city centre and well located to excellent public transport routes with bus stops almost at the gate.

We offer a range of options and prices and are flexible and ready to listen to your proposals and are prepared to fit your needs.  Groups can supply their own home-made morning, afternoon teas or supper, using their own supplies.  This is a superb community facility which we are privileged to have and we want to share it with others.

If you are keen to find out more please contact us on or call 0800 VBASE NZ


The Canterbury Cricket Trust also owns and rents the adjacent Hagley Sports Centre (previously  the Horticultural Hall).  Previously the Sports Centre has been available for community groups to hire for recreational activities, hobbies and community group activities as well as entertainment and social purposes. From 2020 the Sports Centre will be unavailable to hire due to the planned refurbishment project. Updates on the project can be found in our news section.
