Gardens Magic: live and luminous in Wellington


View the map

TAP FOR MORE INFO:

There’s nothing quite like listening to live music under stars and fairy lights on a warm summer evening. 

And, at the Gardens Magic summer series, held at the Soundshell in Wellington’s Botanic Gardens, you can do it for free. 

Pack a picnic and grab a spot on the grass to enjoy the dulcet tones of Kiwi music legends and new tunes from fresh talents over 18 nights throughout January. 

As the sun goes down, the Botanic Gardens transform into a wonderland of lights, with colourful installations and displays created by MJF Lighting and students from Massey University School of Design that wind through trees and between flowerbeds.
