There are reasons as to why Auckland is New Zealand’s most populated cit,y and one of them is that there’s something new to do every week! Bustling with culture and diversity, Auckland really is “the city that never sleeps,” so if you find yourself short of ideas on what to do this week, The Urban List has you covered!
Tiki Taane Mahuta
For a fabulous night of aerial theatre, hip-hop and kapa haka head to the ASB Theatre for Tiki Taane Mahuta. Telling the story of two generations torn apart by the tragedy of a fatal car crash, it asks if the next generation will step up and confront the past and help bring about forgiveness. With music by award-winning Tiki Taane and Shapeshifter’s Sam Trevethick, this is a must-see show.

When: Monday 29th May

The team at Beirut have welcomed new Head Chef, Alexandre Vallee (formerly from The Grove restaurant), who has collaborated with Executive Chef, Sam Campbell, to create a brand new menu!
