Streetfood Station

Some of the best food trucks in Auckland along with a licensed bar, serving organic wine and craft beer will be taking their positions in the Mt Albert Market on the 4th of August with plenty to pouch upon. There will be cuisines from different parts of the world and some premium wines from top wineries that are sure to melt your tongue and amplify your hunger cravings. Come along with your friends and family, and have a good time tasting a variety of gastronomic delights which you may not find in any restaurant menu.

One Night Of Queen

Who doesn’t remember the legendary vocals of Freddie Mercury and his evergreen hits like Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You. Gary Mullen is certainly the man who has come closest to resemble his voice, and has also replicated the same on many occasions. On the night of August 10, he will be recreating that showmanship of the greatest band at the Dunedin Town Hall in Otago. Ever since 2000, when Garry won Stars in Their Eyes, he has been touring with his spectacular live concert, One Night of a Queen.

Sex Ed By Porn?

Extending support to young people in an age of pornography, this workshop on the 1st of August at the Napier Boys High School will assist you in understanding how pornography has shaped youth’s sexual experiences and expectations, and guide you with tools for a safe respectful sexuality. The training will be led by Maree Crabbe, who along with David Corbett has conducted many interviews with people from the porn industry. This is more of a counselling session for those who have distorted their sexual understandings because of pornography.

Beervana

The national beer event of New Zealand is back this year at the Westpac stadium in Wellington on the 11th and 12th of August, with hundreds of beers and cuisines from some of the best breweries in the country. This is an ultimate thirst quencher, with vibrant beer cocktails, outrageous brewery displays, cheeseburger spring rolls and beer matched silent discos. Some of the international breweries will also be participating for the very first time in an event that is not only a festival, but a sumptuous experience.

The Evolving Universe

Attend this session on the journey of Earth beyond the Galaxy, and travel past in time at the Expressions Whirinaki Arts and Entertainment Centre on the 15th of August. Go through some of the spectacular photographs taken by telescopes, known to be the largest in the world. Enter a panoramic world of nebulae, stellar nurseries and supernovas in this exclusive science-based exhibition about the evolution of universe. You would surely want to bring your kids as well, for some fascinating displays that can quickly capture their imagination.

The Classic Comedy AllStars

The home of live comedy will come to life on the 18th of August at The Classic Comedy Club, featuring a selection of rising stars and top headliners. The 2-hour show will have 4 to 5 comedians entertaining you throughout, with bursts of laughter on offer. It’s advised to make your bookings in a group of 5 so as to get a discount on a table of 6. Minors should be accompanied with their guardians and entry will not be given to intoxicated persons.

The Great War Exhibition

Created by Sir Peter Jackson, The Great War Exhibition honours the role played by valiant New Zealand soldiers in the 1st World War. A global story will be recreated at the Dominion Museum Building with a stunning array of movie-like setting, depicting the war year by year, and scene by scene. From the 11 tonne gun to the 10 tonne tank and the hand-painted figurines, there will be rare and thought-provoking artefacts on display. This is a world-class exhibition with plenty of photographs from that era melting away the last century. It shows the bravery, spirit and hardship of those who lived through this significant time in history.

Cinderella

Nelson Academy of Dance will be proudly presenting fairy tale sessions on magic and love, Cinderella, the Ballet from 24th to 27th of August. This will be a delightful night featuring a glittering ball and beautiful music by Prokofiev, as you witness the dance performance by Cinderella and her prince. All the credit needs to go to the director Gillian Francis, who has gathered some talented students with some excellence in sound, lighting, backdrops, costuming and choreography. Enjoy this cherishing act with the ones you love.

Auckland Night Markets

Auckland Night Markets take place across 6 different locations across the city with some delectable street food and delicious treats from around the globe. Since its introduction in 2011, the markets have expanded in popularity, being a regular feature on the calendar. There are plenty of toys, fashion and food to be had, along with live music performances and stage shows. Additional entertainment is provided by dance troupes, magicians and buskers.

A Festival Of Russian Ballet

On the 28th of August, the Isaac Royal Theatre in Christchurch will be the showground of the Imperial Russian Ballet company, following their success with the Nut Cracker and Swan Lake, in a 3-hour ballet extravaganza, stunning the critics and thrilling audiences. This eclectic program consists of a diverse mix ranging from the dramatic Bolero to magnificent Don Quixote. The former is one of the music masterpieces in the world, while the latter focuses on a retired gentleman in search of grand adventure and glory. You are sure to be swept away by the sheer panache of this performance!
