Matariki Pūrākau – Storytelling

Eastbourne St, Hastings

Each night you are invited to nestle under the “big top” in Civic Square. Join the communal circle as storytellers ignite our imaginations and illuminate our minds as they did for our forebears. Whanau will share the history of Nga Pou o Heretaunga as they bring to life eighteen large pou carvings representing an ancestor from marae around Hastings District. Adjacent to the luxurious winter setting is the digital light show of the Matariki stars, a display not to be missed.
