It is the headquarters of the ‘Once Upon an Island Waiheke Storytelling Festival’, held in June of each year over the Queen’s Birthday weekend.

During the year the Centre hosts a number of public activities.

These include the monthly ‘Sunday of Stories’ and the ‘Imagined Worlds’ children’s workshops.

The centre can also be booked for birthday parties and other private functions.
