Always dreamed of going to the ballet?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Well now you can - live, in your living room.

The Neighbourly team is super grateful to our friends at Royal New Zealand Ballet for their support over the years - so we're excited to be telling our Neighbourly members about their very special event: Live in your Living Room.

This weekend, grab a cuppa and some gingerbread and venture in to the dark, fantastical realm of Hansel & Gretel. Inspired by the old-fashioned magic of silent movies and music hall vaudeville, this ballet will transport you to a magical world with large-scale cinematic effects, world premiere choreography by Loughlan Prior and a specially commissioned score by Claire Cowan.

Live in your Living Room. This curated series of productions from the RNZB archive will be broadcast weekly on Facebook Premiere.

Enjoy performances at Friday 3 April at 7.30pm; Saturday 4 April at 1.30pm and Sunday 5 April at 10.30am.

Will you make the most of changes to DIY rules?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?

The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.

Drive-In cinema opens tomorrow night...

Kate from Meadowbank

Looking for some covid-friendly, family-friendly/date-friendly fun? Check this out.... thedrivein.nz...

A dear friend of mine has turned a rancid Covid lemon into a huge serve of burgers and ice-cream for all of us...

(She’s not on neighbourly yet so I’m posting on her behalf)

Anna Hood and her business partner Vinnie Sherry, run Campbell+Co, an events business in NZ (Diner en Blanc, etc). Covid-19 has pulled the proverbial handbrake on their thriving business - as it has for so many businesses.

So … in a cool example of courage, innovation & quick action, Anna and Vinnie have launched Drive-In Cinema (thedrivein.nz...) at the ASB Stadium in Auckland, with sponsor AA Smartfuel.

Starting tomorrow, it’s 23 sessions across 10 days. You stay in your car, pre-ordered food is brought to you, contactless of course (Burger Burger and Ben&Jerry’s) and you get to watch a cool movie.

Go get those tix and support a local biz while getting your burger on
