Top 5 events on in Wellington this week

Our pick of the best events on in Wellington this week.

He Kura Korero – The Gift of Speech

He Kura Korero encourages young people to be bold and brave in using Te Reo Maori in everyday life, whether they know a little or a lot. Join the fun and be apart of this exciting cultural journey by learning through live music, comedy, Kapa haka, song, and storytelling.

Mr McGee and the Biting Flea

Prepare to be mesmerised and enchanted as huge packing cases open and new worlds emerge, filled with quirky characters and stories. Capital E presents Patch Theatre Company's much-loved collection of tales from popular children’s author, Pamela Allen. Using an assortment of props and found objects, the three performers bring the tales to life.

New Zealand Opera: The Turn of the Screw

Benjamin Britten’s haunting operatic version of Henry James’s famous novella The Turn of the Screw. A young governess arrives at a remote country house to care for two children with only written instructions from their guardian, who advises not to disturb him. Before long a tapestry is woven of obsession, sexual awakening and the destruction of childhood. A narrative just ambivalent enough for us to project upon it our own fears.

The Pink Hammer - Five unhappy people in a shed full of tools.

Join Maggie Taylor as she guides you through basic carpentry skills and chisels away at the stereotype that has kept women out of the toolbox for so long. So reads the flyer for The Pink Hammer Workshop - when four strangers turn up for their first lesson they soon discover their tutor has disappeared – along with their pre-paid fees.

This family-friendly event offers a great opportunity for Phoenix fans to engage with their local football heroes, as well as to see the squad in action against Team Wellington in a pre-season match.
