Hello 2014!
We hope you all had a safe and relaxing holiday break and made the most of the stunning weather we have been having. We are back and ready to kick-start the year, and as always, we have a great summer line-up of events headed your way to ease those post-holiday blues!

After a short break, Silo Cinema is back tonight with ‘Spirited Away’, alongside the Silo Markets.

Looking ahead, we have an exciting line-up of events for those of you sticking around Auckland for Anniversary weekend.


Auckland Anniversary weekend on your waterfront

World's Edge
Silo 6, Silo Park
Friday 10 – Friday 19 January

Wrapping up Wynyard Christmas Quarter
Last year in Wynyard Quarter a new Christmas tradition was created for Auckland with the waterfront being a one stop shop for festive cheer.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to visit Santa in his kiwi style bach, and to all of you who donated a present to Auckland City Mission and via the Angel Wishes tree.

An overwhelming 1,354 presents were donated to children less fortunate through Auckland City Mission ensuring no-one went without.

We are also excited to have seen approximately 94,500 people visit and experience the Wynyard Christmas Quarter.
