Kia ora, welcome to Capital E!

We are closed until further notice. Follow our creative journey on our social media.

Following direction from Mayor Andy Foster, Capital E – PlayHQ is now closed until further notice.  

We understand this may be disappointing but to contain the spread of Covid-19 this is the best action to take. We will continue to monitor advice from the Wellington City Council and Ministry of Health.   

We’re working on innovative ways to present our creative experiences and we’ll share any updates or changes here and on our social media channels.    

Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui. Be strong, be brave, be steadfast.
