Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF) 2021 kicks off in a fortnight, offering a jampacked programme for you and your whānau to enjoy.
Happening between 4 and 21 March, AAF 2021 features a 100% Aotearoa selection of more than 70 multi-art shows and events at theatres, galleries and unique indoor and outdoor venues across Tāmaki Makaurau.
Paying homage to the overarching 2021 theme of Aroha, shows on offer include everything from dance to theatre, live music to comedy, visual and digital art, talks and debate, community participation projects and more.
Among those tipped to be crowd pleasers this year are Che-Fu and the Krates at Auckland Town Hall for the 20-year anniversary of their album Navigator.
The APO will perform the soundtrack to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial while the film screens at Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre at Aotea Centre and Michael Hurst will appear in a version of Jack and the Beanstalk playing the role of Jack's mum.

Aucklanders are being called to have their say about the new layout of the Arthur Grey low traffic area in Onehunga.
The people-friendly area will be trialled for the next two weeks.
It is designed to allow access to cars but stop them from using the location as a short-cut.
Trials have been taking place around Arthur St and Grey St in Onehunga, and Eastview Rd in Glen Innes as part of the national Innovating Streets for People pilot fund.
Local Board chair Chris Makoare said it was critical to get enough feedback to make the best decisions for communities.
He has urged members of the public to be patient and to complete the online survey on the stage 1 layout.
The board wants to know what residents think about the area being trialled, about road safety, traffic speeds and volumes.
