Where are we?
You'll find The Civic on the corner of Queen Street and Wellesley Street.
Tickets and seating
The Civic Box Office is to the right of the main entrance (on the corner of Queen Street and Wellesley Street) as you come into the building. It opens 90 minutes before the start of performances.
Visit our Tickets and Seating page for more information.
Parking and transport
The Civic car park is a short walk from The Civic, making it a great option for shows there. It is important, however, to remember that sometimes all our venues are filled with events. Make sure you have a backup plan — or book a space in advance.
Visit our Parking and Transport page for more information.
Eating and drinking
You can enjoy a pre-show drink in the theatre bar, or for something a bit more substantial, visit Stark’s Café and Bar. Stark’s offers special show-themed cocktails, as well as Caffe L’Affare coffee, tea and cold drinks. If you’re headed to The Civic for a matinee, you can also enjoy cabinet food like filled baguettes, croissants and bagels. It’s a great place to visit for a daytime or showtime treat.

All Auckland Live venues can be accessed by wheelchairs and have lifts and ramps to assist those who have difficulty climbing stairs. Companion seats are available for those booking wheelchair spaces, and guide dogs are welcome at our venues.
For every show visually impaired patrons can call Ticketmaster at 09 970 9745 any time before 5pm on the day of the show and they will make sure the front of house team is aware of your needs.
We have two wheelchairs available at the venue for you to use if you or someone you’re coming with has mobility needs. You can book one of these by calling Ticketmaster at 0800 111 999.
The Civic was built way back in 1929 and while it’s a gorgeous building, we know that the foyer spaces can be a bit of a maze. There is a lift available, but it can be difficult to find. We suggest you ask one of our team to show you where it is located as soon as you arrive. We’ll be more than happy to help!
We have a hearing aid loop available for all shows. Contact Ticketmaster at 09 970 9700 for advice on the best seats to use it in. To connect to the hearing loop, switch your hearing aids to ‘tele’.
