As the festival is on around town for the next few weeks, I wondered if any of the Welly folks fancied a group night out at a show or some music or something???

You do the organising, we'll try our best to be there.

I see Philip Glass will be doing a talk. I think I'd rather have my nails pulled out extremely slowly.

I caught a band in Frank Kitts Park last Thursday night, have yet to find out who they were. They were bloomin' good though!

Here is the link for Aesops Fables

http://www.nzfestival.nzpost.co.nz/t.../aesops-fables

Shows seem to be at 3pm.

An alternative might be the Children's Cheering Carpet that is on from 15th to 19th March I think. [someone check that please] It is another very popular kids event.
