Located in the heart of downtown Tauranga, Baycourt is the Bay of Plenty’s premier performing arts facility. Baycourt is a treasured cornerstone of our city’s heritage – a place where people of all ages can be entertained, inspired and escape into the wonders of performing arts. There are three objectives particularly close to their hearts; celebrating the arts in all its forms; nurturing present, past and future generations of artists and performers; and presenting patrons with the very best shows on offer.
Their multi-purpose performing arts and events complex provides a variety of spaces for our local community, as well as visiting national and international acts. Baycourt can host groups and events of all sizes, from small gatherings to major professional productions.
The heart of their operation is the Baycourt Addison Theatre, which is steeped in history. Over three decades, countless performers have graced its stage, infusing the floorboards with their own passion and love for performance. From primary school students to octogenarians and international acts; performing on their stage is an experience that remains with you for life.
With a 500+ seating capacity, an extendable stage, bespoke orchestra pit and world-class fly tower, audiences are treated to sophisticated experiences that deliver top-quality acoustic and visual delights. Baycourt also offers a full catering service and has a licensed bar on-site.
The venue boasts everything from a black box theatre that can be transformed to suit any performance or exhibition, to a well-appointed backstage, and professional and affordable conference facilities.
Baycourt looks forward to welcoming you! Baycourt, where the arts come alive.
