Public Trust Hall

131-135 Lambton Quay


Following their successful efforts to restore and strengthen The Public Trust Building, the McKee Fehl team set their eyes on a new challenge: to transform the previously vacant and splendid ground floor into Wellington’s finest functions and events venue.

Set in elegant Edwardian Baroque architecture, this high-grade refurbishment has created a luxury function space that can accommodate up to 300 people (theatre style) or 200 (banquet style) in CBD Wellington.

Public Trust Hall was formally opened by Rt. Hon. Jacinda Ardern at a cocktail reception on 21st October 2019. Now available for hire, the venue space features:

  • Main Grand Hall with (400 m2) entertainment space including a gallery with lounge style seating, stylish facilities and a stairwell to the basement meeting room, catering kitchen and additional bathrooms.
  • Well-equipped catering kitchen – basement (75 m2)
  • Basement meeting room and toilets – basement (170 m2)

Key features:

  • Function space for up to 300
  • Well-equipped catering kitchen
  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Assisted listening system
