Preserving the Civic Theatre – George Farrant interview

There is a extensive interview on the RNZ website from Kim Hill’s Saturday Morning show on 11 March, with George Farrant, Auckland Council’s Principal Heritage Advisor.

They discuss in detail the restoration of the Civic Theatre, which was led by Auckland City, the council at the time. There is a lot of fascinating detail about the history and structure of the building, and George talks about his philosophy on heritage.

The present restoration of the St James Theatre is also covered.
