Capital E and the Museum of Wellington City & Sea are coming together to present Mysteries of Matiu/Somes these school holidays. On 28, 30 April and 2 May, children will begin their day with a session of story-telling at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea. They will then be armed with an iPAD to ferry across to Matiu/Somes to explore the deepest, darkest secrets of the iconic Wellington landmark, filming their discoveries as they go.

After a fun packed morning of story-telling and filming, kids will be treated to a portion of Wellington’s finest fish & chips for lunch. The OnTV Studio at Capital E will be the last stop of the day, where the children will spend the afternoon editing their filming and discoveries into their own movie.

The programme combines an educational experience of learning about Wellington’s unique history with modern technology and creative expression.”

In the event of bad weather the workshop will take place at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea and later in the OnTV Studio, where Capital E’s advanced technology will transport kids onto Matiu/ Somes Island.

The workshop begins at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea with a 3pm finish next door at Capital E Central.
