Help Q Get Through

Help Q Get Through
We need your help to raise $150,000!


We are incredibly proud of all that Q has achieved, bringing audiences together with theatre, comedy, dance, music and a killer cocktail or two. Our community's love of the Q experience has helped us present over 5,500 performances and change the landscape of the arts in Tāmaki Makaurau.

Like many others, COVID-19 has hit us hard. Since closing our doors we’ve lost 85% of our income as well as most of the events we’d lined up this for the year. With pay cuts, staffing reductions and expenses stripped back to bare bones there is still a shortfall we cannot fill. We know it's a big ask but we are asking you, our beloved Q whānau, to Help Q Get Through.

Soon, we're going to need places like Q to come together, have a drink with friends and enjoy the magic that is live entertainment. We've got a huge battle on our hands in order to be able to fully re-open in 2021, and continue to provide a space for artists and audiences who are hungry for live experiences.


  1. Donate 
    $10, $100, or $1,000. No donation is too small (or too large)!
  2. Register your support 
    Help us tell our potential funders how much you value Q. 
  3. Spread the word
    Post it, share it, shout it from the rooftops!
  4. All of the above!
    Any combination will make a huge difference.

We know many people are experiencing hard times and we appreciate that this is a big ask, but together we can do it.

Kia kawea tātou e te rēhia xx
