The Atrium

The canvas for your exclusive event

Re-discover grandeur in Christchurch. The design of Atrium at The Tannery in Woolston is influenced by the architectural and aesthetic craftsmanship of by-gone eras, creating an un-paralleled atmosphere for social events. A place where heritage meets modern design and comfort, a boutique shopping destination that transforms itself into an elegant year-round evening event venue.

Tastefully designed and meticulously appointed with French tiled floors, mahogany shop fronts, and stained glass, The Atrium comfortably accommodates 350 guests for a gala dinner. The ceiling comes to life with iron arches and the translucent roof, highlighted with fairy lights for your special occasion.
