Covid-19 Red Light setting at Te Auaha


At Red, our Te Auaha venues are open with very strict health measures in place.

Protecting the health and wellbeing of ākonga (students), kaimahi (staff), artists, audiences, and the wider community is our priority.

If you are attending an event at Te Auaha, please follow these guidelines:

  • If you are unwell, or someone in your household is self-isolating, please stay at home and contact Healthline (0800 358 5453) or your local medical centre for advice.
  • Anyone visiting any part of Te Auaha must be fully vaccinated (unless exempt), present a valid My Vaccine Pass on entry and scan the Government QR code, or use our manual sign-in option.
  • Wear a face mask at all times. Our staff will also be wearing face masks.
  • From 3 Hui-tanguru (February), a face covering will need to be an actual face mask attached to the head by loops around the ears or head. This means scarves, bandannas, and t-shirts should not be used.
  • Maintain a physical distance of 1 metre from others for the duration of your visit.
  • Follow all signs and instructions from our front of house staff on site.

More information about your visit:

  • Events that go ahead under Red light setting will have very reduced audience numbers to enable 1 metre physical distancing. This could mean a change to your booking. Our Box Office team will contact all affected ticket holders and we thank you for understanding if we need to refund or rebook your tickets.
  • The bar will not be open.
  • Each venue will have a separate waiting area, so please follow our instructions about where to wait before your show starts and ensure physical distancing from others within your waiting area.
  • Before and after the event, please avoid congregating in our common areas, including in the foyer or on the ground floor.

Thank you for your continued support and for understanding our careful response to Covid-19. The Venues team is happy to help with any questions you may have. Contact us at
