White Tie Catering talks about the Theatre Royal:

“Great events are often about ‘theatre’ and that’s what we love most about working with The Isaac Theatre Royal.  This Christchurch icon naturally lends itself to the WOW factor, and with the right planning, can easily turn an event into quite the performance! Weddings and corporate events, seating on the stage, the theatre of food and music….The Isaac Theatre Royal team is wonderful to work with and combined with the Events Management staff at White Tie, result in superb functions that are a little outside the box. No drama, just theatre.”
