Vbase is the venue manager of Christchurch's premier entertainment, convention and sporting venues - Horncastle Arena, Air Force Museum New Zealand, Christchurch Town Hall, Orangetheory Stadium, and Hagley Oval Pavilion.

Horncastle Arena

Located in the business precinct of Addington, Horncastle Arena is ideal for exhibitions, tradeshows and large scale special events but also offers an array of great spaces for more intimate gatherings.

With a generous 4,000m2 of flat floor space, extensive back of house, large concourse areas, and 18 corporate suites, there is plenty of room to play with. The simple design, flexible shape and high ceiling allow the venue to be easily configured for a huge variety of events.

The venue is complemented by an expansive parking area which can house up to 2,000 vehicles, making this one of the most easily accessible venues in Christchurch.
