When it's time to put aside the serious stuff from work and monkey around with your workmates, then Willowbank is the perfect function venue. At a time when many Christchurch venues are closed, consider the fantastic options Willowbank can provide …

  • Company Picnics & BBQs in the farmyard area

  • Cocktail parties & product launches in our restaurant

  • Midwinter & Christmas Functions

  • Group Dinners

Birthday parties at Willowbank are heaps of fun.  You get to meet the animals and even get a chance to feed some of them too.  Mums and Dads are very welcome and everyone gets a yummy lunch.
