Manawatū's vibrant arts scene is inspired by the unique energy of our region, interpreted by the creative and cultural heart of the many creative people that choose to call this place home.
Bustling with diverse art galleries, theatres, museums, exhibitions, dance programmes and so much more, get your creative senses tingling.
Manawatū boasts a vast range of cherished theatres showcasing the region’s outstanding talent and culture, including the grand Regent on Broadway and the only professional theatre outside of the four main centres, Centrepoint. With these creative hubs catering to a variety of local and touring acts, there is always a show waiting to be watched.
Appreciate historically and culturally significant sites across Manawatū.
From the center of Palmy where we all come together at Te Marae o Hine to the Turitea Pā that proudly sits beside our awa as an homage to the 15 metre structure that existed there years ago.
