We nurture creative talent and showcase exciting new NZ performance. Our buzzing year-round programme is an alternative mash-up of theatre, dance, improv, stand-up, and experimental work.

We don’t create these shows ourselves; we support artists to present their work to crowds of arts lovers in one of our three professionally equipped theatres.

Over the years BATS has been the spark that lit the careers of many household names. We’re the place to get up close to Aotearoa’s next generation of performers, writers, directors, designers and event technicians.

With a cosy boutique bar on site and an average ticket price of just $15, a night out at BATS is a unique and immersive Wellington experience.

Coming to shows at BATS makes you an important part of our vibrant passionate super-beautiful dynamic community.
