One of the evergreen venues for entertainment in Wellington is The Pines. The Pines is a long established function and events venue nestled in the hills of Houghton Bay, Wellington. Looking south towards the South Island, the views speak for themselves with floor to ceiling panoramic windows making a perfect backdrop for your special event, in any weather.

I’ve entertained there many times since 1986 and have always had great nights there, from the early ‘dine and dance’ cabaret style evenings with the late Dalvanius Prime through to school balls, 21st birthday parties, company and social club events and of course, lots of wonderful weddings. Tony and Shirley have run the venue for almost 30 years, and the service there has a real family feel to it.

Here are some pictures from events and celebrations I’ve entertained in recent years at The Pines.
