LIVE DAY | Midwinter Celebration

Howick Historical Village Pakuranga, Auckland from Howick Historical Village

Join us at Howick Historical Village for a cosy midwinter Live Day! Prepare for the cold as the Victorians did - learn how to make a rag rug and your own candles. Sip mulled apple juice and dance the winter blues away with the Morris dancers!

Houses were festively decorated with greenery and lights. Learn how to make an evergreen wreath or bough with the Howick Floral Art club at 11:30am.

Meet costumed Villagers, see the coal range in Puhi Nui homestead fired up, blacksmiths at work at the forge and attend a Victorian school lesson. Try sewing on a Vintage hand-crank machine! Visit the sweet shop, filled with old-fashioned lollies, fudge and treats.

Book in for a special portrait session with photographer Adrian Cook of TINTYPE CENTRAL to experience how images were made in the 19th century with light sensitive wet-plates.

Come along to experience the Village bustling with life! Explore the gardens and unwind at the Homestead Café for brunch or lunch. Make a day of it!

Admission: adult $18, student/senior $14, child $10, family $45, child under 5, members & annual pass holders - free entry. Unlimited door sales available.
