We have quality sound systems, cordless microphones, and dance speakers with disco lighting in the dance area for use with iPods etc. Bands and DJs are welcome, but in order to comply with our resource consent, they are required to finish playing by 11:30pm. We recommend bands/DJs announce the last dance so guests are prepared for the evening to end. Final guest departure is by 12:00 am.  Trent’s staff can assist with taxi arrangements, and guests are welcome to leave vehicles in the car park overnight.
