Rimutaka Prison Gate to Plate ballot

Rimutaka Prison Gate to Plate is an annual event as part of Visa WOAP which is now entering its sixth year. The event has become a hugely important one that embodies the festival ethos of ‘more than just a meal’.

Rimutaka is a working prison, and Rimutaka Prison Gate to Plate is a training initiative that makes a real difference to the lives of prisoners, giving them more employment options and skills for when they are released.

Every year the demand for tickets vastly outstrips the supply. We want to give people an equal opportunity to experience this incredibly important event and see the amazing work that is being done in the prison. 

Please read the FAQs and terms and conditions for key dates and process. Should any decline or not purchase then there are further draws. Once all have been purchased we will email to confirm if you were unsuccessful. No other tickets for this event are available to purchase through presale or general sale. 

Remind yourself with this blog from 2017 on what makes this event so special. And check out the video below to learn about the 2018 years chef mentors.
