Frequently Asked Questions

Q: We would like to visit the hall to plan for setting up our event, is this possible?
A: Yes, simply contact us to arrange a suitable time.

Q: Where do we pick up the key at the beginning of our hire period, and where do we return it to?
A: 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). Otherwise we will give you instructions for obtaining the key from the lockbox which is attached to the hall building.

Q: Do I need a license to serve alcohol at my event?
A: 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.

Q: Are crockery and cutlery provided?
A: 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 Facilities page.

Q: Are there any restrictions regarding music and noise?
A.  The Kuaotunu 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 after 10pm to minimise the noise being carried up to the hall's neighbours.

Q: Is smoking allowed in the hall?
A: NO. As Kuaotunu Hall is an historic hall with wooden floors and walls, smoking is not permitted in the hall building. Note that naked flames of any kind, including candles, are also not permitted.
