Toitoi – Hawke’s Bay Arts & Events Centre – has launched its first audience survey and YOU are invited to respond.

The survey aims to gather your preferences on the sorts of shows you would like to see Toitoi offer, as well as other information to guide customer service improvements – from accessibility and ticket purchasing to parking and the bar service!

Hastings District Council Arts & Culture Manager, Megan Peacock-Coyle, says surveying locals will become a regular feature.

“Toitoi is focused on being a community-led venue, which means it’s important we regularly gather feedback from our community. We are excited to launch our first audience survey and will run it annually in future.”

“We want our community to keep telling us what they want to see, as well as the ways in which we can better serve them. For example, are we meeting everyone’s needs for accessibility? Does our programme reflect the diverse, multicultural make-up of our community?”

For helping Toitoi take the community’s entertainment pulse, all who complete the survey can opt to be entered into a draw (you can enter or remain anonymous) to win a prize package that includes a double pass to a Toitoi show, a $50 Toitoi food and beverage voucher, and a one-night stay in a one-bedroom suite at Porters Hotel with a midday checkout. How cool is that?!
