What are you doing this weekend…? 🤩

The Team from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

March is Red Cross Appeal month. During March, we raise funds to enable us to deliver services to the most vulnerable people in our communities. Services such as delivering Meals on Wheels, helping to settle new Kiwi's in Aotearoa New Zealand and training our Disaster Response volunteers to support with rescue and recovery during a disaster.... and more

This year we are doing our appeal a bit differently and we need your help! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the Red Traffic Light settings we can’t go ahead with our physical street collection so instead, we are partnering with www.Chooza.com... to bring you our "List, Sell, Give Hope!" campaign.

It’s easy! You list it, someone else buys it and together you give hope by supporting New Zealand Red Cross. With your help, we can continue to support those most vulnerable in our communities when they need it most!

So, this weekend why not find some items lying around home that you have been meaning to rehome or donate to charity and add them to Chooza. New or pre-loved, if it is worth $14.99 or more you can find a new home for it and support New Zealand Red Cross at the same time.

With every item listed you will get a donation receipt for the sale price that you can claim back as a taxable donation, so it is a win-win-win situation.

Night fever returns for postponed shows


Showtime Australia’s The Bee Gees Night Fever is set to return this September to complete three final performances from its postponed 2021 tour.

The show will be making two stops in Auckland - at the north shore’s Bruce Mason Centre on 16 September and the southside’s SkyCity Theatre on 26 September – plus an exciting arena performance in Hamilton at Globox Arena Claudelands on 20 September.

The show’s international cast and crew were already in New Zealand in October 2021 ready to start their national tour when extra COVID-19 restrictions were brought in by the New Zealand government, forcing the last-minute postponement of some of their events.

The cast is thrilled to finally now be able to return to Auckland and Hamilton to perform for fans there, and is hoping to make these shows extra special for all the patrons who have been so patient and understanding.

“It’s been a difficult few years for our industry. But New Zealand fans and theatregoers have been so supportive and understanding. Now we just want to bring them a great show to say “thanks” for sticking in there with us,” says Promoter and Director Johnny Van Grinsven.

Fans will be able to hear all the disco dance-floor-fillers, smooth 70s ballads and 60s Pop standards that the world-renowned Bee Gees are famous for, including Stayin’ Alive, Jive Talkin’, You Should Be Dancin’, How Deep Is Your Love, More Than a Woman, Tragedy, If I Can’t Have You and so many more, performed live in three-part harmony with full backing band and theatrical production.

Tickets are on sale now from the venue box offices.
