Music in the Park

‘Summer in the Park’ and ‘Jazz on the Village Green’ are free outdoor concert series set in Hastings and Havelock North parks respectively. Held over 5 weekends in the summer, these two popular series entertained audiences of over 6,000 with a fabulous line up of musicians, including: Singing School New Zealand, Whimzik, Hawke’s Bay Caledonian and City of Napier Pipe Bands, Ish, Fuego Latino, Margot Pierard feat. Wil Sargison, Dave Boston and Friends, David Selfe Trio feat. Mandy Meadows and The Teenage Antics of The New Romantics. This was a totally accessible series, that attracted diverse audiences. People, who brought their picnics, blankets and chairs, with many moved to dance under the trees all whilst enjoying the music together. A shared community experience that is the embodiment of what hot summer afternoons are made for!

Our Outdoor Summer Concert Series is currently taking a break. Watch this space for details of future events.
