  • Free


Fri 30 Oct, 5.30pm–10pm

4.5 hrs


A special night of fun and performance with a small nod to the Mask Carnivale, which had to take a break this year because of COVID-19.

Come and hear music from the NCMA Cello Ensemble and  Schola Musica Chamber Orchestra, drumming with Kimberley Anderson, a community singalong led by Central School Choir and the Voice Collective (lyrics here), a special performance of Chronos Interrupted, and an aerial performance (in a tree!) by the gravity-defying Chloe Loftus! Then the energy will step up a few levels as DJ Serpico closes the night with pumping beats.


All acts will be based at the stage at 1903 Square and Upper Trafalgar Street except Chloe Loftus, who will be outside the Nelson Provincial Museum.

5.30pm – NCMA Cello Ensemble
6.00pm – Kimberley Anderson Drumming
6.30pm – Central School Choir and Voice Collective
7.15pm – NCMA Schola Musica Chamber Orchestra
8.00pm – InsideOut Physical Theatre Company – Chronos Interrupted

9.00pm – DJ Serpico
Finish – 10.00pm
