In the 1970s, the first Friends of The PumpHouse rallied together to save the building from demolition and develop it into an arts space for the community.

By joining Friends of The PumpHouse today you join a community of artists and theatre lovers. You also play a special role in supporting our vision to be a thriving art, cultural and educational space for Auckland.

The PumpHouse may have played an important role in your relationship with theatre, from coming to shows here as a child, visiting socially as an adult, or bringing your children and grandchildren here – you may have even performed here!

For you, The Pumphouse may be a connection to local community history.

Whether you support the long-running annual events such as Shakespeare in the Park or the professional and community theatre companies with seasons throughout the year, our musical concerts, Creative Talks, or workshops, by becoming a Friend of The PumpHouse you become part of the social history of our community
