Functions and Venue Hire

Booking your function with ‘The Ward’ helps support the Wellington SPCA. We can arrange a package to fit you, from full service, catering and equipment to just the venue hire.

Wellington SPCA and the old Fever Hospital are both intimately bound into Wellington’s history. For over 130 years Wellington SPCA has been servicing the wider Wellington region and the old Fever Hospital has stood, nestled amongst the trees in Mt Victoria, for almost 100 years.

Now that Wellington SPCA has found a home at the old Fever Hospital we are able to share some of these wonderfully historic facilities with you. We have spaces, large and small, that will make your next corporate event, conference, wedding or birthday party one to remember.

To make a booking or find out more contact the team at The Ward.
