Wellington’s iconic venue Shed 6 is due to reopen in August after an extensive redevelopment. The totally refitted waterfront venue will be one of Wellington’s most up-to-date business and entertainment event centres, with a dynamic space that can be reconfigured and linked to the neighbouring TSB Bank Arena via an arcade that previously housed the remains of 150-year-old wooden sailing ship, Plimmer’s Ark. The arcade has also been rebuilt as a refreshing, light-filled pre and post function space.

Positively Wellington Venues, who commissioned the project, are particularly keen to see the venue up and running as Wellington Town Hall prepares to close its doors for three years due to seismic strengthening.
