Escape! those Winter Blues

The Tauranga Arts Festival is holding its first off-year event and what fun we've had putting together a short programme guaranteed to chase away the winter blues.

Escape! will be held over Queen's Birthday weekend (May 31 and June 1, Saturday and Sunday) and has a distinctly bookish feel to it - Readers and Writers, an evening panel discussion, a piece of intimate theatre, a performance reading and two workshops.

Escape! has a loose travel theme, whether it be far-away places, people, food or times past and we have some marvellous guests to carry us away with them. We do hope you’ll join us on the journey.

Escape! will be launched on April 29, with tickets going on sale the next day. If you would like a programme mailed to you, please let us know or you can view the full programme here from 30 April.

Thank you for a wonderful festival, see you in 2015
