Here are the best things to do in Auckland this week.

A Fine Balance
Head to Q Theatre to watch the incredible performance of A Fine Balance. The Auckland Theatre Company and Prayas Theatre present a monumental saga that tells the story of ordinary people going through extraordinary change and challenges.

The Elephant Wrestler Comedy Lounge
Cosy up at Takapuna’s local favourite as it transforms into the ultimate Comedy Lounge. The Elephant Wrestler is hosting a range of New Zealand’s finest comedians, including 7 Days and The Project regulars. Gather your squad and head along for dinner and drinks with a side of belly laughing, all kicking off at 7pm.
Thursday 20, June
Returning to New Zealand with his hilarious new tour is Michael McIntyre. One of Britain's favourite comedians is back with fresh content to perform at Auckland’s Spark Arena. The BAFTA award-winning comedian delivers spot-on observational comedy and has a trademark ability to turn mundane situations into master-classes of human exasperation. McIntyre sells out arenas around the world and no doubt his Auckland show will too so get in quick and secure your tickets now.

Join New Zealand’s wine family for an indulgent six-course dinner at The Sugar Club. Featuring the best local ingredients matched with New Zealand’s best wines, the evening is a delicious and indulgent way to spend your Thursday.
