Put aside March 23! Around 3pm, the Rose Centre will put on an art event that can involve you and your families at Narrow Neck beach.

Acclaimed sand artist David Hilliam (Google David Hilliam beach tagger) will create a beach art right there in the sand. Join us for a piece of fun and art for all. Just come and watch, or put your hand up for David to have you be part of the art rendering team. If you want to add to the art make sure you bring a rake, leaf rake or big stick/pole.

This is a 100% free event. Just show up, bring your own refreshments and of course the Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap SunSmart suggested behaviour is highly recommended!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Rain check days - our backups are 3pm on the 24th or 8am on the 30th.

Parents and Grandparents welcome to bring their kids or grandkids, free coffee, tea and bikkies, you are welcome to leave a koha in our box and enjoy an hour out of the house with us at The Rose Centre:

11am December 17 - Judy Lawn

11am December 19 - Norah Wilson reads "My Sweet Girl and the bag of purple balloons".

11am December 20 - Geoff Allen will read his brand new book "The Fairies of Down Under and Other Pākehā Tales"

11am December 21 - we don't have the author of this best seller, but local friend of The Rose Centre Gail Kapa will read the Te Reo version "Paraweta", whilst John Davies from The Rose Centre will read the English, "Poo Bum"!

There is no registration for the events, it's general admission, show up, and if we go over 110 visitors we will just have to apologise...but we think this is a more than manageable number on the grounds of probability! Koha only, donate what you can afford and if that's zero, it's zero. We would like to help you with an activity and we'd love you to help us with our never ending spend but we know the pressure for families at Christmas!

Thanks to Gecko Press we also have one kids book from their lovely lineup to give away each day. It'll be a mystery who will win till the day!

The Rose Centre Inc is a charitable incorporated society that was founded 26 years ago. It's a focal point for community groups, activities and the ever popular theatre events it facilitates.

We want to make sound a whole lot better in our theatre and foyer for our many and varied users. In the theatre we need new wireless microphone technology to free speakers up to move around the theatre and engage with audiences and still speak through the PA system.

In our foyer and break out rooms (pictured below) we don't offer any sound right now. A grant of this nature should go a long way to providing foyer sound that can be isolated in to the three sections of our area creating much better options for the community users to use small spaces but offer great sound.

This project will deliver a more flexible Rose Centre and facilitate more events within the space, improving people's reach in to the community. It makes the space safer to use removing the need for complex individual sound setups for every event staged in the community areas of the complex.
