AdLib at Puke Ariki

AdLib at Puke Ariki

Puke Ariki is holding it's first ever literary festival from 22 - 24 June, with plans to celebrate libraries, liberty and literature. Puke Ariki is going all out with a tightly packed festival, super squished with fun. Brighten up on this fat solstice sandwich of stars: meet local story tellers of fact and fiction through words and pictures.

Explore the epic board game collection, delve into digital tools and discover their collections with experienced guides. Indulge your curiosity, participate in poetry and learn new skills. Leave the cabin fever crazies behind and celebrate the winter solstice and Harry Potter's 21st year in style with Puke Ariki!

Here is a link to more information including the full programme of events.
