🛑 We are now fully booked for 2024.  Please only use this form if you have already spoken to us about a booking.

From Shakespeare to musicals, classical concerts to rock bands, we’re accepting expressions of interest from anyone interested in performing at The PumpHouse next year.

With three performance spaces to choose from, and experts on hand to help with marketing and promotion, technical assistance and health and safety, we are here to support everyone with a story to share.

Expressing your interest

To express your interest in dates at The PumpHouse in 2024 please complete the form below.  This will give us the information we need to allocate space in the calendar.  If you have flexibility around dates, let us know what your options are.

Our goal is to ensure everyone who wants to use The PumpHouse gets a chance, that there is a wide variety of performance on offer, and that our local community are able to enjoy and share in a live theatre experience.

We’re especially keen to ensure there is space for communities and stories that aren’t often well represented.


You can find our full rate card for 2024 at The-PumpHouse-Rate-Card-2024

Please note that pricing is subject to change, pending the outcome of Auckland Council’s budget which could see funding reductions for arts organisations like The PumpHouse Theatre.

If you need some advice around funding and financial support, please get in touch.

Venue specs and technical equipment

Need to know a bit more about our equipment and venue layout? You can find a full list of dimensions and technical equipment at pumphouse.co.nz/resources, and you may find our 3D Tour of the venue useful in getting your bearings.

What happens next?

Once we receive your Expression of Interest we’ll then make contact with you with an offer of hire and details of the deposit you need to pay, along with our Terms and Conditions to sign.

Once we receive both of these back your hire period will be confirmed in writing.


If you’ve got any questions or would like to talk to someone about your event, please contact our Business Manager James Bell, on 09 486 2386 or email james@pumphouse.co.nz
