Temple 7th Anniversary - The 7 days of Fun

Temple 7th Anniversary - The 7 days of Fun Monday 30th September to Sunday 6th October

The Temple is about to turn seven!! Over the last seven years more than 10,000 performances of original material have graced the well-trodden Temple stage and we look for to many more performances in the future.

Some of the better known acts have included: Anika Moa, Tadpole, James Reid, Eye TV, Graham Brazier, Hammond Gamble, Chris Knox, Emma Paki, Mahinarangi Tocker, Wayne Mason, Jan Hellreigel and Karen Hunter.

Not only is the Temple one of Auckland's major breeding grounds of local talent by providing performance space for everyone from seasoned professionals to "first-time-out-of-the-bedroom" performers, we are also forerunners in the industry in providing a raft of support services for the industry:

The 7th anniversary also follows some renovations to the bar (we will be closed Tuesday 24th September to Saturday 28th September), and we will be launching a new logo.
