Top Dog Theatre Open Air Shakespeare: Twelfth Night

In its ninth year of delighting Christchurch with summer Shakespeare, Top Dog Theatre brings you Twelfth Night. This witty and colourful play is one of Shakespeare’s most well-loved and relatable comedies. Full of cross-dressing, love triangles and class rivalries, this production is full of 1920s charm and style.

Set in the idyllic Mona Vale gardens, this is a chance to lay out the picnic rug and soak up the early evening sun. The show will cater to young and old; as this is Shakespeare in its most viewer-friendly form!

Bond Street Bridge is where Sam Prebble, of the Broken Heartbreakers and the Reb Fountain Band, gets to break out from the mould and play his own style of music: selections from an Antarctic song cycle inspired by the exploits of Scott and Shackleton, favourites from 2011's Spring Summer Awesome Winter and newer material. Accompanied by glitchy beats, a fair bit of strings and a surprising amount of cinematic pomp and circumstance.

These events are all part of the Garden City SummerTimes festival. For more information please visit summertimes.co.nz.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>
