Excitement and entertainment at the Carnival of Capital E

Excitement and entertainment at the Carnival of Capital E


Explore your creativity at Capital E this July school holiday in the two-week long celebration, Carnival of Capital E!

Kicking off the school holidays on Sunday 6 July is The Big RevEal! Meet under the sails at 10am for the grand unveiling of Capital E’s new-look space at 4 Queens Wharf. A marching band and roaming performers will spill into the square while magnificent entertainers and artists will wow you on the main stage, on the Queens Wharf plaza. Meanwhile, inside E Central, the focus on fun continues with activities for the whole family from 10am – 2pm.

Throughout the holidays families can drop in to Leave Your Mark on the new larger-than-life mural in E Central. Or take to the craft table to design what Capital E means to you and become world famous in Wellington. At the end of the holidays, the top 20 designs will be printed onto Capital E chairs for everyone to admire for years to come.

Then it’s time to get involved with Capital E’s one-off school holiday workshops all under one roof for the first time in nearly two years! Children can enjoy the wonders of wind as they experiment with movement, shapes and patterns to create their own wind-driven sculpture and art work inspired by Wellington’s Tower of Light and Urban Forest. They can learn how to expand their wardrobe with balloons as Highly Flammable takes on a high-flying, costume-creating adventure, embark on a dancing adventure with Java Dance and create funky dance moves or try some partnered tricks. Children under five can come with parents to settle in for story and singing time with world-famous children’s author Juliette MacIverand then join her for inspiring activities for young writers and artists!

Director, Stuart Grant says, “It’s finally here, we are so happy to be launching into a new programme of activity in this new space. Most importantly, we want young people in Wellington to help us shape our E Central space and future programme, so it is not only designed for them, but actually created by them”

And that’s not all…experience new programmes in Capital E’s Digital studios. The growing phenomenon that is 3D printing is coming to MediaLab! Using software to model a virtual creation, young people will then be turning it into a 3D reality as something to keep forever. Visit the new OnTV studio where you will script, act in, film and edit your own movie using all kinds of different E-themed props! Enjoy the entire film-making experience and you’ll end up with your own excellent E-movie.


For children aged 5 and over, Grandad’s Lucky Storm will captivate with a story of adventure, piracy and family. Enjoy the Capital E National Theatre for Children world premiere of a unique theatrical experience as Grandad waits out a stormwith his grandchild and through the magic of theatre, see his tale come to life before your very eyes! After the performance, you can design your own boat fit for a storm in the Hannah Playhouse foyer.
