Our indoor drop-in space for children and young people to play, explore, experiment and have fun. The Capital E box office will be the first thing you see, with a friendly face at the counter to help you with any queries. A free playground for pre-schoolers is at the heart of the space with interactive elements, climbing frames, trikes, games and more and in a cosy corner, complete with beanbags, there is a beautiful collection of Gecko Press books for those quieter moments.

During the school holidays and one-off events, E Central becomes a themed area buzzing with activities and workshops for the whole family to enjoy! This is an ever-evolving space and all of our visitors are welcome and invited to contribute thoughts and ideas so that E Central belongs to the Wellington community. Drop-in to the space throughout the week and stay as long as you like!
