Auckland Arts Festival on annual trial

Arts lovers welcomed the announcement earlier this year by Auckland Council to trial an annual Arts festival in Auckland for 3 years, starting next year.

The Auckland Arts Festival has grown from humble beginnings in the 1990’s to a world class showcase of local and international talent.

Highlights from the last Festival included a stunning performance from French performers Groupe F in the Auckland Domain and locally produced Pasifika musical, The Factory (subsequently invited to perform at the Edinburgh Festival this year).

The programme for next years Festival is due out in October, with some “teaser” announcements made in September. We’ll keep you posted on the highlights as updates come to hand.
