Capital E National Arts Festival is on..........Sun 13 to Sun 27 March 2011. Book now, there's some great stuff to see. Check out their link or come and pick up a program from Finc!


Wellington is preparing for the biggest Arts Festivals for children in New Zealand in 2011. For two weeks in March venues around the city will open their doors to thousands of children and their families. Each weekend during the festival clear your schedule and get booked in for an entertaining journey through theatre, puppetry, comedy and music with companies from NZ and around the world.
The creators of Lonesome Buckwhips will perform a delightfully unwholesome show Vinnie Septic and the Princesses in a fable about what not to be when you grow up, Australian based Terrapin Puppet Theatre will be setting sail for an adventure of the aquatic kind with Boats, and Kidzone Giggles Live will have you singing pirate shanties before you know it! Enjoy a circus fairytale with a gothic twist or join Manilayo the eight metre humpback whale on Ilott Green, whether you’re looking at the action on stage or the reaction in the faces of the young audiences, you will be inspired!
