Light the night

07 Dec 2017

New Plymouth will glow again this summer thanks to the TSB Bank Festival of Lights. Each summer Pukekura Park, one of New Zealand's premier botanical gardens, is transformed into a magical illuminated night-time wonderland of multi-coloured lights gleaming amongst the trees, attracting more than 100,000 visitors.

The TSB Tunnel of Light is back by popular demand along with new and exciting features, while fantastic live acts will light up the stage as part of the festival’s On-Stage programme, bringing a diverse range of international, national and local artists to New Plymouth.

Fun-filled Summer Scene events and activities will be a great day out for children and families. Think big dig, scavenger hunt, music and dance workshops and a day at the zoo.  There is a glow zone with Resene FX Fluoro paints adding to the glow.

A Summer Seniors programme has also been introduced to the festival, with events catering for the over 60 community. Head along to Pilates, Zumba, ukulele and marimba workshops or spend the day listening to classic tunes from the Devon Hotel Brass Band.
