Explore Wellington with Capital E for Everywhere this April school holiday

Capital E brings young people and their families an exciting fusion of imaginative workshops all across the capital.

Leap into Capital E Central’s brand new purpose built digital studios; open to the public for the first time. There’s no better way to kick off the holidays than getting your Flappy (or Splashy) on using the latest game design software in MediaLab with our mega-byte sized workshop, Game On - With Unity. Interested in story-telling or nautical adventure? Motivated by the thought of fish n’ chips? Then arrive with your sea-legs for a fun-filled day exploring and filming in Mysteries of Matiu/Somes, before reporting to the OnTV Studio for final post-production on your documentary masterpiece.

The fun continues at Capital E Central with unique workshops including a one-off experience Creative Brains. This free event has two sessions, one for 8-10 years and the other for 11 years and over, where young people can create, play and brainstorm about what they want to see in Capital E’s new public space on Queens Wharf. This is your chance to tell them what you want! Contribute ideas and be a part of the magic in preparation for the official opening of the space. There are also some cool retro chances to get crafty and creative at Capital E Central with Totes Boats and Pinball Whizzer.

Director, Stuart Grant says, “With huge advancement in technology, there is such a wide range of ways for young people to collaborate, create and learn, but some of the most stunning examples of innovation still occur when a child encounters a cardboard box.”

Capital E is joining forces with the new-look Hannah Playhouse to present the New Zealand Premiere of Patch Theatre Company’s Mr McGee & the Biting Flea, proudly supported by Classic Hits. Under the direction of Adelaide-based Dave Brown, this uniquely imaginative production uses three performers to bring award-winning Kiwi children’s writer, Pamela Allen’s stories to sweet music-infused life. Interactively unpack the magic and enchantment before and after each performance too, in a workshop where children (or adults!) can create their very own Mr McGee Balloon Head Craft as a memento of the show.

Ever thought about decorating your own robot? Now you can with Fun-botics at Carter Observatory. Create your own robot character by using an assortment of household objects and imagination. Then, experience Carter Observatory’s brand new planetarium show Tilt for a great end to a very creative day.

It is a journey of imagination and fun with E for Everywhere all across the capital this April.
