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.

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.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
