Impact on Regent Theatre & Clarkson Studio events


The health and wellbeing of our team and everyone who visits our venue is our priority.  The Regent Theatre continues to follow Ministry of Health guidelines for gatherings and public events, whilst being mindful of potential escalation and the impact of reduced notice periods on all stakeholders.


With our box office open, we ask people follow Ministry of Health advice:

  • Stay home if they are feeling unwell.
  • Practice good coughing and sneezing hygiene.
  • Wear a mask and frequently wash or sanitise your hands.
  • Present your My Vaccine Pass on your phone, or in printed form which will be verified or sighted (children under 12 years and 3 months do not need to provide a My Vaccine Pass).
  • Those with medical exemptions must still have a My Vaccine Pass (obtained through your Medical Practitioner).

Guideline to Attending Shows

  • If you feel unwell it is not advisable to attend a public event. Please stay home or if you have been asked to isolate.
  • We strongly encourage you to wear a face covering.
  • Scan in using the NZ COVID Tracer App.
  • Present your My Vaccine Pass.
  • Please do not arrive late. Allow time for scanning in, purchasing tickets or food and beverages and finding your seats.
  • If you need to pay for your food or drinks, use contactless payment options if possible.
  • Most of all though, please enjoy the event and the experience of being able to view from within our beautiful auditorium.

Regent 24 Hour Book Sale – December 2021

Supporters who wish to donate items for our annual sale on 3 & 4 December at the More FM Arena at the Edgar Centre, are asked to hold on to these for the time being until we are at Level 2 when we can resume collections and sorting.  At Level 2, our Box Office will be open so donations can also be left in our foyer with our Box Office team.

We are hugely grateful for the support of the Dunedin community for our fundraising activities.  Like you, we look forward to returning to normal as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we must focus on keeping our staff, volunteers, patrons and supporters safe and healthy.
