RECAP: The PumpHouse Picnic

The theatre is currently buzzing after an exciting weekend! Our PumpHouse Picnic on Sunday 12th November was a vibrant day of fun with people coming from all over the city (and some from out of town, too!) to support and celebrate our wee arts hub on the Shore.


We were blessed with a sun-kissed day where many special memories were created. The community was able to tour every inch of our theatre, and it was an absolute treat to see little ones dancing on our stage, heritage buffs exploring the building, and people of all ages basking in the beauty of Killarney Park and Lake Pupuke.

We had a beautiful array of market stalls in the park, courtyard, amphitheatre and foyer. The food trucks took over our car park and provided some delicious nourishment throughout the day. We were thrilled to host some local entertainers in our Genevieve Becroft Auditorium so that people could get a sneak peek of what it’s like to experience a show at The PumpHouse!

We send our heartfelt thanks to the PumpHouse board and staff, our volunteers, raffle donors, and the entire community who contributed to a day filled to the brim with aroha. These shared moments with our community are a very important part of our kaupapa, and we look forward to providing space for more of this in the future!
