Adjoining both Functions on Hastings and the Opera House, the Cushing Foyer can be used in concert with either venue, or as a venue in its own right.
Modern design, including digital screens, art features and two mezzanine floors, combines to create a truly unique venue which blends the best of technology and architecture.
At 219m2, Cushing Foyer comfortably accommodates up to 200 theatre-goers, 120 for banquets, or 250 for cocktails. As a classroom, Cushing Foyer can hold up to 90 people.
Its mezzanine, with breath-taking views of the surrounding Hawke's Bay landscape, is 230m2 and holds 80 people for theatre, 48 for banquets, 100 for cocktails and 30 as a classroom.
