Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF) 2021 kicks off in a fortnight, offering a jampacked programme for you and your whānau to enjoy.
Happening between 4 and 21 March, AAF 2021 features a 100% Aotearoa selection of more than 70 multi-art shows and events at theatres, galleries and unique indoor and outdoor venues across Tāmaki Makaurau.
Paying homage to the overarching 2021 theme of Aroha, shows on offer include everything from dance to theatre, live music to comedy, visual and digital art, talks and debate, community participation projects and more.
Among those tipped to be crowd pleasers this year are Che-Fu and the Krates at Auckland Town Hall for the 20-year anniversary of their album Navigator.
The APO will perform the soundtrack to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial while the film screens at Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre at Aotea Centre and Michael Hurst will appear in a version of Jack and the Beanstalk playing the role of Jack's mum.
