Let me entertain you

Newmarket’s own professional theatre company presents the comedy hit Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell. The show opens at the Factory Theatre on 9 October, after a sell out New Zealand tour, and runs until 25 October.

Newmarket is part of the Artweek Auckland festival running 10 – 19 October.  As part of this celebration of the diverse and vibrant contemporary art scene, the public and commercial art galleries, artist-run spaces and venues are opening their doors and invite you to explore what is on offer.  For a taste of the Newmarket experience here are the following events:


  • “Tour of Art”  Be guided around with an expert tour guide to visit six public art pieces, sculptures and art exhibitions.
  • “John Pusateri: stone lithography demonstration”.  Watch the creation of hand-burnished prints.
  • “Collecting Contemporary”. Do you want to start an art collection but do not know where to begin or how much it will cost?  Find out all the do’s and don’ts and ins and outs of collecting art.
