The Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre closed in November 2017 following a seismic assessment that identified the building as earthquake prone.
Since then significant planning and design work has been undertaken to strengthen and redevelop the centre. Construction is expected to get underway later this year (2019) with the centre reopening in 2021.
