Kiwis kick off 4pm 1 November

Kick-off for this year's Four Nations international rugby league game between the NZ Kiwis and Toa Samoa at Toll Stadium will be at 4pm on November 1, and tickets are now on sale.

The game at Toll Stadium will be something of a homecoming for some of the Kiwis, so the team will be making the most of their stay in Whangarei to get among the community.

Adam Blair was born in Whangarei, while Elijah Taylor spent some of his youth in Northland, attended Kaitaia College and considers himself a Northlander. He is a proud supporter of the Northland DHB “water is the best drink” campaign launched earlier this year.

“This event is all about family, friends and the wider community, so kick-off has been set for 4pm in Whangarei to suit families,” said Venues and Events Manager John Lynch.

“We are expecting a sell-out crowd, so it is suggested that people do not leave it to the last minute for ticket purchases. Tickets are purchased online through Ticketek or can be sourced from the Forum North Box Office.”

Mr Lynch said there are several opportunities for corporate hosting, enquires should be directed to Ticketek Hospitality on 09 336 4118 or hospitality@ticketek.co.nz

Ticket prices are as follows:
November 1
NZ Kiwis v Toa Samoa, Whangarei
A Reserve - adults $35, children $20
B Reserve - adults $20, children $10, family $50

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
