Riverside Community Cultural Centre
A Place to Celebrate - A Venue to Remember
Venue for Hire
The Riverside Centre, located on the hill above the Riverside Café, is an attractive and versatile facility for many different events, including Community Lunch (open to all) and Riverside Trust's educational workshops.
The beautiful Centre started off as a humble local church in early 1961 and has been used for a variety of occasions over the years. If you want to know more about the transition from church to centre, please click here.
Church services, celebrations, meetings, weddings, theatre shows, community meals and exhibitions are some of the many events that are part of the Centre's history. Today, this special building is also home to regular classes, choir sessions and workshops that attract people from the wider Nelson region.
The Riverside Centre offers two main meeting/activity spaces and a large commercial kitchen as well as an artistically designed courtyard and airy foyer for lounging and discussion. The whole venue is accessible by wheelchair and provides for an airy, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
We also offer accommodation on site (charged separately) and catering for small functions.
