Turnbull house

I talked to Jesse from Turnbull house and it looks like they will be closed down for booking for the next year to strengthen for earthquakes, just and FYI for those looking for venues to book!


Bugger. Its a nice venue.

Fortunately, Vogelmorn or the Brooklyn Community Centre seem quite useable.

also Te Poneke has a few spaces for fairly cheap and has the benefit of also being very centrally located

Necromancy! People sometimes ask what’s happening with this beloved larp venue. Sadly, the answer is that we’re not going to be using it any time soon:

Budget 2021 has allocated $250,000 to do “detailed planning” for the eventual strengthening of the building. Goodness knows how much the actual work will cost or when it will get started.

More necromancy! Work has finally begun, but no completion date, and whether it will be available for community use is only one of “myriad possibilities”.


I can’t believe it’s been closed for 10 years already. It was such a good, pleasant, convenient venue. Dear TH, you are missed.

Further necromancy! Finally, after ten years, the earthquake strengthening has begun. But it will still take years:


I wanted to share a photo of an old friend, sadly missed, getting some much needed TLC…
