There will be a range of their freshly baked goodies on offer, including lemon curd, chocolate salted caramel, chocolate raspberry and blueberry cupcakes, as well as a range of tempting Valentine’s Day specials.

Nope, we’re not talking about tents and the great outdoors. As part of the Auckland Pride Festival, Park and Sainsbury present Camping, their super camp comedy creation.

With shows on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, it sold out at the International Comedy Festival so is guaranteed to be a hoot! Lock in your tickets here.
