Arts Inc. Heretaunga proudly presents…

Our fabulous festival team has been working harder than ever to present a festival for you to connect with, enjoy and love. The 2018 Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival programme (online and in stores from 1 August) is the best local, national and international offering yet, from artists at the height of their careers, who have spent years learning and honing their craft, to individuals who have just started their journey, being trained and mentored by the best. All this, to give us the most exciting and engaging live experience possible.

Please take the time to come and immerse yourself in what our artists have to offer. And here’s a challenge … book all the shows you know you’re going to love and at the end try something new, less known to you, outside your comfort zone, perhaps. You may find yourself surprised, delighted, or enchantingly enticed in new directions.

Mounting a festival of this scale each year is a huge undertaking from a small organisation that dares to dream big. We couldn’t have achieved this without a huge level of community support from our core funders, sponsors, patrons, community grant providers, corporate suppliers, the talented festival team and the volunteers who give their time so freely. They do all this for our community and a huge thank you goes to all involved – you make Hawke’s Bay the amazing place it is!

Thank you for continuing to support us and we look forward to seeing you at the Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival … enjoy the show.
