Christchurch Functions & Venue Hire | Catering | Weddings | Christmas Parties | Workplace Shouts

Functions and Out-Catering

We have years of experience in hosting special events and Christmas functions on site at Terra Viva.

Venue spaces can accommodate more than 100 people, with indoor and outdoor options.  

Food options can be tailored to specific tastes and dietary requirements.  

Our Executive Chef is available to sit down and discuss your needs and wants for your special event and will oversee all the planning to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Alternatively, if it's out-catering that you're after, we offer a full out-catering service for off-site parties in and around Christchurch, workplace shouts or business meetings.
