Waikato Regional Theatre project moving ahead in leaps and bounds


12 December 2017

The new Waikato Regional Theatre has moved into another stage with Hamilton City Council provisionally allocating funding in its draft 2018-28 10-Year Plan. 

At a meeting in early December, Hamilton City councillors agreed to set aside money for the Waikato Regional Theatre, although the Council still has to approve the 10-Year Plan and associated funding in 2018. 

Proposed funding includes $25 million towards building the theatre (spread over three years) and an annual grant of $1.1 million for 20 years once the theatre is open in 2021.
