*WIN* 10 double passes for Circolombia!

Auckland Arts Festival

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

Appreciation post

The Team from North Shore, Rodney & West Auckland Police

Thank you to all our essential service workers working tirelessly to ensure our communities are kept safe.

Issac is 81years old and was observed by a member of the public struggling to walk to the supermarket. A quick interaction with Isaac revealed he was in need of some intervention.

Community Constable Reuben Boniface ?‍♂️ was able to connect Issac with Age Concern Southland and with their assistance provide a care package of cooked meals and loaves of bread to help him through this time ? #kindnessgoesalongway

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Are you OK?

The Team from North Shore, Rodney & West Auckland Police

Your emotional and mental wellbeing is important. It is normal to feel stressed or lonely when self-isolating, but there are some things you can do to feel better.

Even if you are not sick you may be feeling anxious about COVID-19. This is normal.

Reach out to your family and whānau, friends and workmates. Sharing how we feel and offering support to others is important.

We want to remind you that if you or someone you know is struggling right now, there is free help available.
