The Kūaotunu Hall is fully subscribed for weddings from 1 February 2024 until 30 April 2024
No, naked flames are not permitted in the hall under any circumstances due to the risk of fire. LED candles may be used instead.
Upon payment of the hire fees (and any bond, if required) we will give you instructions for obtaining the key from the lockbox which is attached to the hall building.If you are booking a frequently repeating event, we will issue you your own key (note that there is a $10 charge to cover the cost of this).
No, however it is possible to get strong mobile reception inside the hall.
The best way of getting in touch with a local cleaner is to advertise your requirement on Kūaotunu's local Facebook page, Kūaotunu Katchup.
There are hooks in the four corners of the ceiling which have been placed there for this purpose.
We’re sorry but due to the age of the pews and their deteriorating condition, we no longer permit any of the hall’s furniture to be used outside.
Yes this is OK, provided that you insert them carefully and remove them later.
The Kūaotunu Hall is situated in a residential area, and therefore noise and music must be kept at a reasonable level, especially in the evening.
The storeroom door which opens to the back garden, and all the windows on the south side of the building (i.e. closest to the hillside) must be closed at 10pm to minimise the noise being carried up to the hall's neighbours.Amplified music must cease at 12am (midnight).
The closest Refuse Transfer Station (RTS) is in Matarangi. You can see their opening hours and location here. Note that this RTS accepts the blue council rubbish bags 24 hours per day. These bags can be purchased from the Kūaotunu Store next to the hall or from one of the supermarkets in Whitianga.
No. As our hall is in a residential area, the Kūaotunu Hall Committee has a policy of not accepting more than two wedding or party bookings a month.Please also note that the Hall Committee reserves the right to accept or decline any booking, and to be the final arbiter in all matters relating to the hireage of the hall and its furniture.
No, there is only one rate for weddings and this is not discounted.
The Hall Committee is unable to offer alternative storage for its chairs (or any other furniture). We suggest you talk to the hire company as they will often take the hall furniture away and return it when they pick up the furniture that you hired.
Only if you wish to sell it. Otherwise you can supply the alcohol and give it to your guests for free, or you can ask guests to bring their own for their own consumption.
Unfortunately not, due to the associated health and safety issues that could arise. Well-behaved dogs may however be present at an event held in the outside space at the back of the hall.
Yes, there is some crockery and cutlery, but it is a mismatched selection and may not meet your needs. See the Kitchen Inventory on the Hiring the Hall page.
No. As Kūaotunu Hall is an historic hall with wooden floors and walls, smoking is not permitted in the hall building. As mentioned above naked flames of any kind, including candles, are also not permitted.
Being an old building, the windows are not all at the same height. However the left window which faces the Kūaotunu Store (i.e. north) measures 3185mm from the floor to the top of the curtain rail, while the right window measures 3160 mm.
Unfortunately not. However electric BBQ's, spit roasts etc may be used outside.
Yes, there is a ladder in the back storeroom.
You may display a sign outside the hall only while your event is in progress (special community-wide events may put signs up 2-3 days beforehand).Note that event flyers and posters can be displayed on the community noticeboard across the road, simply place your notice into the red dropbox attached to this noticeboard a few days before you want it displayed.Banners can be attached to the hall railings, as long as no screws are used or any other method that results in damage to the railings.
