A new month brings with it a brand new season! That’s right folks, spring is upon us and if you are planning to pop down for a visit, we have all the best events of the month covered for you:
New Zealand Theatre Month
New Zealand – and Auckland in particular – is famous for its culturally diverse, and genre challenging theatre. And if you are visiting us during the month of September you will be lucky enough to be here for Theatre month which features a wide range of diverse performances from New Zealand creatives.
Theatre performances take place across the city, so don’t feel you are beholden to one part of Auckland, picking up a programme guide or visiting the website you can learn about all the different offerings and make your own list of pieces you’d like to see, whether that be off-the-wall improv, laugh out loud comedy, or a moving piece, this month has incredible theatre on lock.
The Spring Blossom Pop-up
What better way to see in spring than roof-top bar dedicated to the season? Ruby the locally renowned glass Goose, this pop-up celebrates the new season by bringing new flavours and flowers every Friday, including cookies, doughnuts, cakes, and of course the talk of the town: candy floss wine spritzer and frosé slushies.
The Chocolate Bar Ponsonby Pop-Up
The spring blossom pop-up isn’t the only tasty pop-up heading to Auckland this September, in Ponsonby Central for one week only (17th – 23rd) you can experience workshops and talks about chocolate, Eighthirty Coffee and Fine & Dandy Tea, and be the first to try the brand-new bean-to-bar Foundry Chocolate. Be sure to get in quick chocolate lovers, as this one is not to be missed.
Matakana is famous for its food and drink and this one-day event mixes local produces and growers with local eateries for a match made in heaven that includes celebrity lunches, Brick Bay Feast dinner and so much more! If you have been wondering why Matakana has such a high reputation, or if you are already a fan you won’t want to miss those one, running all day on the twenty first!
