Come together again on Sunday 28 February for the Summer Nights movies, held at the Scout Den, King Edward Park to watch family favourites Trolls World Tour (G) and Sonic the Hedgehog (PG).

Director Community Services Kate Whareaitu says, “We’re thrilled to be able to bring Shaun Preston to town and showcase local talent for our concert in the park.”

“Our movies are always a great family day out and this year is no different with a couple of fun films on offer to sit back and enjoy with the kids.”

“Our Summer Nights events aim to give residents and visitors to the district the opportunity to get together with friends and whānau, relax, and enjoy our beautiful park settings,” she says. “We hope everyone takes advantage of the opportunity we have here in Aotearoa at this time to get outside, come together with loved ones and support the free entertainment on offer.”

The Summer Nights Concert will be on Saturday 13 February 2021, and kicks off at 3.30pm with the Dance Project, 4.00pm Scott Armstrong and Jack Moser will take the stage, followed by Shaun Preston at 5.00pm.
