We hope to create a procession of furniture through Wellington.

Swirling organs, hot percussion, warm guitars and toasty vocals from Wellington's favourite art-rock band Verona.

Free to children of all ages (including grown-ups).

What some of our Friends are already saying about this event: "A lounge-room-furniture spectacular that's guaranteed to satisfy"

"A toasty occasion for the whole family"

"I couldn't think of anything hotter to be doing on a chilly Saturday night, well, actually, I suppose I wouldn't say no to..." (QUOTE ABRIDGED)

"The wife and I have already moved our lounge-room to Civic Square. The kids love it, it's so handy to the library and Time Out"

So wrap up in your winter woollies, bring a blanket, bring the kids, and for heavens sake bring your sofa This will be a night to remember!

(if raining, call 499 4444 on Sat afternoon for a postponement message, and we'll give it another go same time on Sunday)
