Venue Hire

The Backstage Social Club is the new home for Christchurch Arts run by Strut and Fret Production House NZ, the company behind the revised Bread and Circus – World Buskers Festival.

Activated all year-around, the Backstage Social Club will be a hub for Christchurch Arts. A flexible space with a contemporary feel, the Backstage Social Club is perfect for networking, concerts, workshops and artistic endeavours. The space is equally suited to corporate events, product launches and private functions.

Designed and built in 1908, it served as a gymnasium and theatre for the students who attended Christchurch Boys High. With a Tudor Gothic exterior, the Backstage Social Club interior has wooden floors and exposed brick.
