ASB Theatre Marlborough

The new ASB Theatre Marlborough, which opened in March 2016, is a multi-use and purpose built venue, situated overlooking Blenheim's Taylor River.  This new facility is conveniently located adjacent to the Marlborough Convention Centre in Blenheim’s CBD.  Delight in all that Marlborough offers whilst enjoying the comfort of this outstanding new venue.  We offer state-of-the-art facilities and amenities for your live performance/theatrical event, conference, function, event or exhibition.   

In the future, four very different venues will be available for hire, providing options for all manner of events:

1.      The Main Auditorium—our primary venue—is ideal for your live performance event, conference plenary session or keynote speaker address. A 701-seat purpose built Lyric Theatre with excellent acoustics.  Seating is split over two levels, with easy stage access available. The stage house comprises our counter weight flying system, with 65 line sets, paving the way for a myriad of professional, theatrical production and presentation options from which to choose.   

2.    The Anderson Theatre will be the final piece of this multi-functional venue to be completed in the future.  This will be our Black Box Studio Theatre, designed specifically with adaptability and versatility in mind. This intimate space, will lend itself ideally to boutique theatre and concerts, breakout sessions, exhibitions, meetings and seminars on a smaller scale, without having to compromise on quality, production and presentation options.

3.    The Whitehaven Wine Room, which opened for business in July 2016, is ideally suited to meetings and seminars, catered events, such as cocktail functions and dinners, as well as trade exhibitions. It is also a wonderful space for small concerts. The inclusion of a fully removable wall provides further versatility as an extension to the main foyer.

4.    The Foyer is now available for use as either part of a larger conference event, or smaller stand-alone events such as long-term exhibitions, small award presentations, cocktail functions and smaller dinners and concerts.
