Poetry is popular now. To celebrate, several of Wellington’s coolest poets will pretend to be actual popstars for the evening. Chris Tse, Sam Duckor-Jones, Rebecca Hawkes, Joy Holley, Jackson Nieuwland and Freya Daly Sadgrove bring you a poetry reading-cum-arena show, complete with bright lights, beats and backup dancers. Followed by Wellington band Hans Pucket’s Midnight Karaoke Challenge – where participants can sign up in advance to front the band with a song of their choice – SHOW PONIES will be a lux, daring late night event to round off National Poetry Day with a bang, and lots of bangers.
This event is sold out.
