Functions & Catering

We have years of experience in hosting special events and Christchurch 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. Take a look at the videos below to get a taste of what our awesome functions are like.

Our Functions and Catering Co-Ordinator 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. We have a catering canape menu you can choose from.
