‘KITCHEN CHAOS’ – Arts On Tour

July 8 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

When magic is accidentally let loose in the kitchen, everything is turned topsy-turvy.


August 22 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Ageing Irish raconteur Danny Moffat retreats from the harsh light of the world to his bedroom. There, under hoardings of old newspapers and beer bottles, he sorts through a lifetime of memories and regrets, from growing up as a boy in Ireland, to the hopes and disappointments of immigration to New Zealand.
