There's a whole lot to squeeze in between now and Christmas, and a week baited at the end with a long weekend is the perfect place to start with the Look Out! Events & Performing Arts Guide. Catch up with plays 'Spring Awakening' & 'Swingers', and with dance from the Footnote NZ Dance Co. There's music from The Good Girl Song Project & The Manawatu Youth Orchestra, while hanging out at the Olde English Faire in The Square or riding the Halloween Night Trains in the Victoria Esplanade. Bonanza!
