Turner Centre at Kerikeri

Join the Encore Programme


The Turner Centre at Kerikeri, its performances and facilities add vibrancy, style and culture to the district. This in turn supports the growth and widening of economic benefits within our community.


Community support and sponsorship is vital to its on-going success. As a not-for-profit community organisation, the Turner Centre relies on a variety of funding sources to help underwrite acclaimed artists and performers, educate young audiences, create important community programmes and maintain this remarkable facility.


Ticket sales and venue hire revenues do not completely cover costs. Support from individuals, corporates, sponsors, volunteers and other partners is essential to sustain the Centre’s performing, visual arts and community programmes.
