The History

The Rose Centre Inc is a charitable entity registered under the New Zealand Charities Act 2005. It operates "The Rose Centre", a venue for community gatherings, performances, video shows, training sessions, parties, weddings, and business events. It is primarily supported by Auckland Council and further supported by the Devonport-Takapuna Board.

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.

Today we're run by two paid staff and a volunteer Board. We invite you to 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.
