Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 20th May 2017
This concert is a concerted effort by the descendants of Eliza and Jack Rahui in the south island to raise funds to cover the costs of the Puha and Rahui families to travel to Taita Marae Maramanui in late December to connect with other whanau members in their 10 year hui reunion.
Tickets cost $15 and entitle the ticket holders to a private concert, nibbles and 1 free non-alcoholic drink.
At 11:30pm the doors are open to the public for a koha.
The bar will also be open serving drinks from 8:00pm
The evening will start at 8:45pm with a Powhiri from whanau members, a waiata, and a few short speeches pertaining to the kaupapa of the evening and the reunion followed by a video montage of our grandparents, our Marae, Urupa, and the surrounding area that our Tupuna lived and grew up in.
The concert itself has a variety of solo performers as well as bands and DJS (please refer to poster) and showcases Nelsons very own up and coming talent.
