"On behalf of the Papakura U3A group thank you for an unforgettable morning. We were rather overwhelmed by the variety of costumes and props and the fascinating stories you shared about history and use. Your enthusiasm was infectious and we departed on a high!! Over lunch, thank you for the recommendation, we agreed it was the best morning we had spent for ages."
“Everyone really enjoyed our tour, and couldn’t stop talking about it over lunch. It was a great outing for us. So interesting….”

“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 this time with finding you!”
Panmure Probus Club
“A fabulous tour of the wonderful array of props & costumes. This was made so enjoyable with Jo our guide giving us the history of First Scene, how it all works and many funny stories of the goings on over the years. We were made extremely welcome by all staff and could have stayed longer. Dressing up for photos at the end was a highlight. We would highly recommend this tour for other retirement villages!”.

“Wow we had a great day. Many thanks to you and your team for a wonderful morning. There was so much positive conversation on the way to Hobsonville and all the reminiscing about all the old television shows and costumes. I think that same group would like to come back again and explore more!”
