Our New Courtyard Canopy!

Last week we celebrated our brand-spankin’ new courtyard canopy at The PumpHouse Theatre with the official opening ceremony.

The idea for a canopy came to life many years ago and was commissioned in 2017 to celebrate 40 years of theatre at The PumpHouse.

The canopy covers the area between the theatre, amphitheatre, and café buildings, and will provide shelter from Aotearoa’s classic ‘four seasons in one day’ weather for people attending the theatre.

Just under $75,000 was raised for the project with significant contributions from Genevieve Becroft and the Becroft Foundation, and from Milford local and PumpHouse Trust Board member, Peter Baird, plus nearly 1,000 generous supporters who contributed smaller sums by adding a couple of extra dollars when they bought a ticket.

The PumpHouse worked with local North Shore businesses including Shade Systems, Dave Pearson Architects, Brite Sparx Electrical, and Landscape Creations.

We welcome you to come down and check out the courtyard canopy anytime, day or night!
