Energy Centre

The Energy Centre can accommodate larger weddings and functions, as well as meetings, seminars or workshops.

The Energy Centre is a versatile venue constructed from Nelson's old gasometers. Its dramatic hexagonal space is the centrepiece of Founders Heritage Park. The striking exterior gives away to a generous blank canvas on the inside which responds well to dressing or theming.

Particularly suited to events that demand a colourful entrance, from a formal banquet to a vibrant concert or bustling trade fair, the Energy Centre can accommodate larger weddings and functions, as well as meetings, seminars or workshops.
