First Thursdays

Dear Members,

The votes are in and the theme for First Thursday on 6th of July will be:
"The Mad Hatter's Tea Party"!

We would love to see K' Road celebrate in its own way, drawing influence from Lewis Carroll's weird and wonderful journey, Alice in Wonderland.

All K' Road businesses are invited to go down the rabbit hole and transform their venues, stores, menus, shop windows or workspaces into a weird and wonderful adventure that will get the crowds grinning like the Cheshire Cat.

The First Thursdays events are gathering more of a following each time they feature in Auckland's cultural calendar and we host this street-wide event to support all businesses in the K Road precinct. It offers an opportunity to showcase your business to K' Road regulars and new audiences as well so please consider taking part in the evening, even if it is simply keeping your doors open for the night to take advantage of the increase in visitors to the precinct.

We would love to hear your thoughts and welcome any ideas you have. Please send all proposals or arts enquiries in as soon as possible, so we can begin planning our programme for the evening.

Your deadline for proposals is... Thursday 11th May

Don't be late, don't be late, for this very important date! We will not need to have a detailed overview of your event or proposal but if you could please supply the following outline information so we can consider all the ideas presented and start to build the programme. Please email this through to

Name of Business
Name of event/idea
Info about proposed event/activation (3 SENTENCES MAX)

The K Rd Business Association and First Thursdays look forward to hearing back from you and working together to celebrate the strange world we live in on K' Road this July.

Many thanks,
The Team at K' Road Business Association
