Unfortunately Cathie has broken her ankle in the last few days and requires an operation to get things right.
As Cathie is the Writer, Producer and Director of the show we are forced to call off all performances.
We are very SORRY to disappoint you and regret that circumstances have driven us to do something we have never done in 30 years of Christmas Concerts
Thank you all for your support.
Of course ALL TICKET MONEY will be returned as soon as practicable.
Hopefully the show will take place as a midwinter treat to cheer up the shorter days and we look forward to seeing you then.
'Christmas Time at Highwic'
Enjoy a Concert in a wonderful historic home.
ENJOY a glimpse of a Victorian Christmas as it was celebrated in NZ in the 1800s in the beautiful surrounds of Highwic - with Story teller/Narrator Ilona Rodgers, Cathie Harrop Harpist and Presenter, Pianist Hadley Ronayne and musicians Jennie and Dave Khan, Soprano Amanda Kirk, and special guests each night.
Sunday 17th Dec 6.30, Monday 18th Dec at 7.30, and the final show on Tuesday 19th Dec at 7.30.
CHRISTMAS TIME AT HIGHWIC will take you back to the days when there was time to enjoy family gatherings, parties, dances, grand balls, and friends gathered around the piano. The fun, the laughter, the nostalgia, and the homesickness, brought to life with music, stories, songs, parlour games and monologues.
This year the cast will be joined by pianist extraordinaire Hadley Ronayne and actor Ilona Rodgers well known for her many TV programmes and live theatre performances.
After the show we invite you to enjoy a Victorian style supper in the billiard room with the performers and share your own memories of past Christmases.
Also Highwic's traditional Christmas gift shop will be open prior to the concerts.
