Dutch Film Festival in Wellington

Don’t miss out the screening of ‘The Chocolate Castle’ in the Dutch Film festival to be held in Wellington for a closing night on the 11th of November. This is a documentary about ending slavery in the cocoa chain, as young Dutch journalists strive hard to make it possible. It shows the difficulty in eliminating fundamental injustice and errors in a global system. With sheer determination, the journalists manage to launch the first slave-free choco bar in 2005. A decade later, this initiative has evolved into one big movement, with a wide appeal across the globe, including New Zealand.

Cirkopolis

From the 14th of November, the widely acclaimed circus extravaganza Cirkopolis will be taking the centre stage at the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch, after a successful worldwide tour. With their amazing physical prowess, 12 multi-talented acrobatic artists will challenge the limits of gravity, bringing to the show their Canadian-French style of humour. This is an ultimate family show with a fantastic blend of dance, theatre and acrobatics set against an imposing cityscape. Travel to a world where reality is challenged by fantasy and the veil of solitude and anonymity is replaced by vibrant colours.

Saturday Night Fever – The Musical

Saturday Night Fever is the greatest dancefloor musical of all time, due to be held on the 17th of November at the ASB Theatre in Auckland. It’s an iconic story of the 70s about a young Tony Manero who learns how valuable life is. Dance floor is his ultimate getaway from the reality of his dead job, racial tensions in the community, clashes with unsupportive parents and other issues. Ever since 1977, the story has been capturing the passion, energy and life-turning moments that have thrilled audiences over the years. A new generation of talented singers, dancers and actors meet a fresh generation of theatre lovers to explore the pulsating rhythms and soaring sounds of the fantasy.

Toast Martinborough Wine Food and Music Festival 2017

Coming at the back of a history 25 years long, Toast Martinborough is certainly the best food and wine festival in New Zealand. At this year’s event on the 19th of November, around 8 vineyards will be supported by exceptional food, catering to everyone’s hunger. Spend your day talking to the winemakers, trying new releases and ticking off the bubbles bars. Experience the unique taste of each vineyard, along with backing sound tracks that will have you laughing, dancing and singing all day.
