First Scene has created a ‘Give back to the Community’ programme that offers tours of our premises to a range of groups. We are often described as a ‘living museum’ and love sharing our environment with the wider community. We have hosted hundreds of people from groups including Lions, Probus, retirement villages, social clubs and a range of community groups. Our 2,000sqm building offers easy access on ground level with wide aisles. Our retro lounge is ideal for a gathering and can set up to 25 guests.

Your visit would include the following (offered at no charge):

> Morning tea (groups of 12 or less are offered a hot drink, larger groups are offered juice)
> Introduction to the history of First Scene
> Tour of our three departments
> Opportunity to take group photos dressed in accessories (hats, wigs, feather boas etc)

Tours normally take place around 10.30am – Noon during the week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We offer some flexibility as we appreciate some groups meet on other days or in the evenings. Please get in touch with Jo 021 2815 332 to discuss a tour and book a date

“Our members were very excited to see your exhibits, both costumes and props, and were amazed at the number on display. Bev and I have been arranging monthly club outings for over three years now and several members said we have excelled ourselves in this time with finding you!”

“A big THANK YOU so much to you and your team for a brilliant morning outing – everyone loved it. We promoted this as a Mystery Tour so no-one knew where they were going and I think you managed to knock their socks off!”
