TUKU 24 - Doing Their Bit

Thursday 25th April 2024

“Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible...” Francis of Assisi. Find out what it meant for ordinary people to do extraordinary things in the most difficult of times.

Award-winning drama group, Histrionics, presents interactive and informative activities for the whole family in the Granary at Nelson’s charming Founders Heritage Park.

Come and meet some of the heroes of Nelson and New Zealand who “did their bit” for their country during times of conflict – Resistance member Nancy Wake, RAF Group Captain Leonard Trent, Nurse Mildred Rees, and 2NZEF Captain Charles Upham, among others.

Read their stories, ask them questions and help them in their missions
