Tāpuia ō Tīkiti · How to Book
Some events in Te Hui Ahurei are presented and organised by the venues, artists and companies themselves, so the Festival does not organise their ticketing. To purchase tickets for any event, head to the ‘Book Now’ button on each Event page.
If you have questions about how to book for an event, you can contact Te Hui Ahurei:
or you can contact the Venue or ticketing service directly.
Kōwhiria Tō Utu · Choose Your Price
We believe that art is vital to personal and community wellbeing, and these benefits should be available to all. As part of our mission to make art more accessible to more New Zealanders we are piloting a values-driven ticketing platform for 2022 called Choose Your Price for a range of performances across Te Hui Ahurei. Choose Your Price puts the power of price in your hands. You decide.

By paying a little more than the recommended price you’ll be helping us to open the doors to new experiences for more people.

On each Event page, it will say if you can Choose Your Price under ticketing information.
