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 foyer and backstage areas at 1 Taranaki St.
A Circa Councillor will take you on a unique guided tour of the ground level of this 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.
The one-hour tours will run at 1pm daily from Mon 25 – 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).
Booking is required. Please book here or call our friendly Box Office team on 04 801 7992.
Due to Alert Level 2 restrictions, the tour will be of the ground level only, which includes our foyer, two theatres, backstage and outside.
