The History

We were founded in 1992 by community groups and individuals who wanted to see a facility such as this available for locals to utilise. Our two partners at inception and still today are Belmont Primary School  whose land we sit on, and The Company Theatre.

In 2008 the Rose Centre Inc became a registered charitable entity (CC28613) under the New Zealand Charities Act 2005.

Our charitable purpose is to provide support services and a facility for the performing and creative arts in the local and wider community. We do this by focused hire and collaborations to community groups for our local community. We also operate a peninsula renowned Early childhood education centre.

The Rose Centre is a venue for community engagement with gatherings, performances, shows, creative classes,  fitness and wellbeing sessions, and meetings. It is primarily supported by Auckland Council and further supported by the Devonport-Takapuna Board.

We invite you to read more and contact us if you're interested in using our facilities, joining our Board, volunteering here or maybe being a philanthropic supporter of our community good.
