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

There are also lots of free activities to get amongst throughout the weekend.

There are free activities to do every day through the school holidays (bar Saturdays) from making mini catapults to playing street games and more.

World's Edge
Silo 6, Silo Park
Friday 10 – Friday 19 January
An exciting new photography and painting exhibition is popping up in Silo 6 this week, exploring journey and innovation at the World's Edge - Auckland, Aotearoa.


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.
