Circus superstars Circolombia head to Auckland Arts Festival this month with their renegade brand of circus and fiesta fun.
This super-charged company of Colombian artists is changing the face of circus worldwide garnering five-star reviews and bringing audiences to their feet to cheer. With a mix of Latin fire, heart-stopping energy and high-risk adrenaline-fuelled acrobatics, their new show Acéléré is no ordinary circus – it’s simply extraordinary.
Delivered with the rawness and attitude of South American street life, Acéléré turns the spotlight on 14 incredible performers and their endless feats of strength, balance, tumbling and insane pinpoint accuracy, and accompanied by a vibrant mixtape of Latin hip-hop and electro cumbia performed live.
Rebellious, dynamic and wildly entertaining, Acéléré is “the circus performance that shows others how it’s done. Go.” (The Scotsman).
Four shows only at Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre from March 26-29. Find out more and book tickets

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,
Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).
In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.
We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.
