Floodlights for the Oamaru Opera House

Network Waitaki has given $20,000 to help pay for exterior lighting of the front facade of the refurbished Oamaru Opera House.

Lighting specialists were engaged by Network Waitaki to provide advice and set up a trial for floodlights on the facade.

The exercise proved successful, and the Waitaki District Council was working with the Opera House sub-committee to source further funding to ensure the project could proceed in time for the opening, chief executive Michael Ross said.
