HBOH LOGOFollowing Tuesdays announcement regarding the closure of the Hawke’s Bay Opera House Theatre, HBOH management wish to confirm the only venues affected by the closure are the Theatre and Cushing Foyer.

The venues within the Municipal Building including the Assembly Hall, Shakespeare Room and the small meeting rooms are considered safe and are open for business as normal, and available for hire. The Plaza adjacent to Opera Kitchen is also available for hire and events continue to be hosted in these spaces.

The five businesses that operate from the building (Opera Kitchen, Ticketek, Dish Catering, HB Winegrowers and Hutchinson Furnishers) will continue to operate.

We are updating our Website and Facebook page with new information daily www.hawkesbayoperahouse.co.nz and our Ticketek office phone message service 06 8715282 ext 2.  We will also be publishing an update in the Hawkes Bay Today What’s On section on Saturdays.

The Hawkes Bay Opera House would like to thank the public for their patience while shows are relocated.  Support from the Hawke’s Bay community has been overwhelming with many calls received from well wishers and members of the public concerned for the Opera House team. This support has been gratefully received.

Hawke’s Bay Opera House Board Chairman
