'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.
