Aucklanders are in for a night of awe-inspiring wonder when Place des Anges hits Auckland Arts Festival in March. Hailing from France, Place des Anges is the outdoor event of the summer – an evening of stunning beauty.

As the sun sets, the angels come out to play, appearing high above the heads of thousands in Auckland Domain. And so begins a night of magic…one which you will remember forever. Performed by a talented team of aerial acrobats high above the treetops, this family-friendly show is stunningly beautiful and an unmissable experience.

Place des Anges takes over Auckland Domain for three magical nights only from March 13-15. Find out more and book tickets.

“Mortgage the house. Sell your possessions. Do anything that makes it possible to see Place des Anges. It is absolutely wonderful” The Advertiser (Adelaide)

Bald eagles, a Weddell seal, a gentoo penguin, a three-toed sloth, a grey whale and a curious racoon are just some of the many animals featured in The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, opening on Friday at Auckland Museum.

This week, visitors to the Museum will get their first opportunity to immerse themselves in some of the most vibrant, fascinating images collected this year of the vast and varied nature of life on Earth. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is the world’s most prestigious international nature photography exhibition, direct from London's Natural History Museum.
The longest-running nature photography exhibition in the world, it is known for inspiring curiosity and wonder, while also reminding us of the fragility of our planet and our responsibility to protect it.

Among those featured is the work of 14-year-old Aucklander, Cruz Erdmann, who won the title of Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his snap of a bigfin squid illuminating the inky blackness of the ocean.

Don't miss your chance to see up close the images that have got the whole world talking. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is free with Museum entry.
