Baycourt Community & Arts Centre is an EVANZ (Entertainment Venues Association of New Zealand) supreme award-winning venue and has been an integral part of the region’s arts and culture community since it opened in 1983.

Located in the heart of Tauranga’s city centre, Baycourt is a multi-purpose venue with three prominent spaces; Addison Theatre (580 seat, tiered auditorium), X Space (200 seat ‘black-box’) and the Terrace Rooms (80 seat meeting/function space). The complex regularly hosts a diverse range of events from theatre, music and dance, to conferences, exhibitions, and functions – all presented by local, national, and international organisations.

Accessibility is an important part of Baycourt’s kaupapa. We provide wheelchair spaces in both the Addison Theatre and X Space, hearing loops (Addison Theatre), accessible bathrooms and assistance dogs are welcome. As everyone’s access needs are different, please don’t hesitate to contact our box office on 07 577 7188 to discuss your requirements before visiting Baycourt.
