Tamariki & Rangatahi Programme

We firmly believe in the benefits of engaging in the arts - particularly for our young people. 
Within our diverse programme each year, we specifically create several offerings to spark joy and creativity in curious minds. From school matinees and suitable evening performances, to opportunities to participate and get directly involved: music, dance, theatre, and hands-on creative expression, it’s all theirs for the taking.

Our 2023 Tamariki & Rangatahi offering are available for bookings now.
