Matariki Night Sky
Please join us to celebrate the traditional Maori New Year with the inaugural Matariki Night Sky event on Friday 12 July 2013 from 6.30pm to 9pm, at the Sunderland Lounge, Marine Parade, Hobsonville Point.
This is a free event where you can bring the family for a community picnic, storytelling, lantern parade and stargazing.
Get creative at home and make a lantern to bring along, or register in advance to share a story inspired by Maori myths and legends, the night sky or our natural environment. We have great giveaways on the night for some lucky participants. For ideas and instructions, visit Facebook.
After the picnic and the lantern parade, it will be time to look to the skies. Astronomer Bill Thomas will be joining us for the evening to share his knowledge on celestial navigation and the beautiful sky above including how to find Matariki.
We hope to see you there – please remember to dress warm and bring a picnic blanket to sit on! If the evening is wet we’ll move inside the Sunderland Lounge.

Stories can be told through song, dance, poetry, spoken word or another form of performance in English or Te Reo Maori. Volunteers are needed for the night please email us if you’re interested.
