Here’s some cool events happening this July:


Arts on Tour Present: Seed

This fantastic theatre piece by Elisabeth Esather encapsulates the beauty, and horror, od childbirth by showcasing relationships – and lack of relationships and the effect of a baby on this.

Seed has been lauded as “highly entertaining, funny and sophisticated” by judges the 2014 Adam New Zealand Play Award, which Seed won. This unique piece of theatre mixes honest drama and tear educing comedy to give an insightful and unique view of a sometimes-taboo subject.

Located in our sister street 16th Avenue, this one is an easy one to get to as well!
