Fun events for the whole family

Wellington's calendar of good times is full of events that are fun for kids and adults alike. Check out a few of our top picks for events for the young, and young at heart.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong

Kids will love this hilariously disastrous take on Peter Pan. Direct from the West End, Peter Pan Goes Wrong will have performers battle against technical hitches, flying mishaps and cast disputes in two hours of comic bliss. Recommended for ages 8+. 


Keen to entertain the teens in your household? Grab them some tickets to see the rockstar magician later this month - they'll go crazy for his mind-blowing street magic and large-scale illusions. 

School holiday fun with Capital E

Children will love having a go at bubble-themed print making, outrageous opera workshops, stepping into slime labs and so much more at Capital E these school holidays. Recommended for ages 3+. 

Cigna Saints 2018 season

Gather up the troops and get ready to cheer on the Cigna Saints as they look to continue their good form against the Taranaki Mountainairs on 14 July and the Nelson Giants on the 26 July!

Hurricanes 2018 Season

Join the Hurricanes at Westpac Stadium for some live rugby action in the Investec Super Rugby season. Take the kids along to a match with children's tickets starting from $11.50, or check out the Family Zone with $30 tickets for one adult and one child.

Improv for Kids

The Improvisors take kids into the magic their own imagination with this unique and interactive improv show for audiences young and old.

Kid's Night Walks
