Conference Title

Date, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand



The Club provides full bar facilities to members and guests. A wide range of both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks is available, including eleven different draught beers (mostly from boutique breweries), a selection of wines by the glass, and a selective range of single malt whiskies. Comfortably furnished lounges and a range of newspapers and periodicals are available for members' use. The meeting room can be booked by members for small (10 people) meetings. Adjacent to the Homestead is a gas barbecue. This can be booked through the Manager for private and departmental functions. 

How are these facilities paid for?

The Club has a licence to occupy from the University and the club pays for all rates, electricity, telephone, all internal furnishings and furniture, the BBQ area, the lawn sprinkler system, manager's salary, bar staff wages, and subsidises lunches. A condition of the Club's liquor licence is that only members and guests may be on the premises during Club hours (weekdays between noon and the close of the evening bar). For these reasons, the facilities are not available for use by non-members, unless they are guests accompanied by a member. A guest is anyone not eligible to be a member. See the page labelled membership re who is eligible to join.
