There’s nothing like finishing the Big Band Weekend with a relaxed Big Band Picnic! Pack a picnic and head down to the Victoria Square next to the Town Hall and the Margaret Mahy Playground. If you don't bring a picnic, no worries, as there are food trucks right on site for those who don’t want to miss a big band beat!!!
And if you're hungry for music, we'll be dishing up a multi-course meal of big bands, one after the other.
If wet, the party will relocate to Little Andromeda on the Terrace.
