HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL
FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE.

13 – 25 MARCH 2017

Our 2017 Festival features incredibly versatile artists that specialise in fun, colliding and energising art forms. Dance blends with live music and interactive storytelling; theatre becomes participatory; brass bands perform opera. We have artists from all over the world joining the very best of New Zealand children’s theatre to offer our young audiences truly surprising encounters. Expect the unexpected!
All Ages
Junior - ages 3-8
Senior - ages 8+

For schools

Our full day School and Early Childhood Centre packages are now sold out! We’ve had a fantastic response and we’re delighted so many of you are excited about the Festival.

We still have limited one show options available; which means you can bring your group to the Festival for your favourite chosen event, rather than stay for the whole day.

For public

Tickets are $16.50 each
or choose 3 shows for the price of 2, only $33

Bookings are not required for FREE public performances of The Whale Rider or Mata & the Mysterious Maunga.
