Sponsor a chair (or five)!



The magnificently restored Great Hall deserves some comfortable new chairs to complement the freshly completed heritage woodwork and stonework. We hope you agree.

Light-weight, easy-to-stack, and aesthetically pleasing, these new chairs will enhance the Great Hall and will safeguard the spectacular new wooden floor. Meeting current fire and health/safety requirements, they are both high-quality and hard wearing in order to survive the traffic they will receive over the next few years.

Your tax-deductible donation of $405 will allow us to fund a European minimalist padded chair in beech wood and charcoal fabric, selected after a rigorous comfort-testing process.


Your generous donation will be recognised in several ways — your name or company name will appear on the “Sponsor a chair” roll of honour to be displayed until 2019 in the Great Hall, in the Arts Centre annual report and on the Arts Centre website artscentre.org.nz. You will also receive a tax receipt.


Thank you to the Robert and Barbara Stewart Charitable Trust for sponsoring the first 20 chairs.
