Discover and celebrate the 45-year history of Wellington’s iconic Circa Theatre through a free, one-hour guided tour of Wellington’s unique waterfront building at 1 Taranaki St.
A Circa Councillor will take you on a unique guided tour of the historic building, including rarely seen backstage areas. Learn about the fascinating building move from 7 Harris Street to 1 Taranaki Street – including how the facade of 120-year-old Westport Chambers was trucked across the road and the new theatre built in behind it. You may even get the opportunity to glimpse this year’s Christmas Panto rehearsal, THE LITTLE MERMAID!
The one-hour tours will run at 1pm daily from Mon 25 to Fri 29 October and there will be 4 tours on Sat 30 October at 11am, 12pm, 1pm & 2pm.
Max 20 people per tour and bookings are essential.
There will be opportunities to join as a ‘Friend of Circa’ at a special reduced rate of $50 for the year (normally $60).
Due to Alert Level 2 restrictions, the tour will be of the ground level only, which includes our foyer, two theatres, backstage and outside.
