ASB Gardens Magic returns to the Soundshell at the Botanic Garden for the 32nd year, with MJF Lighting transforming the gardens in a magical light show.

The lighting display is on from dusk each night between 14 and 25 March, and can also be enjoyed at quieter moments when no concert has been scheduled.

Get a group together, pack a picnic and head down early to stake out a prime spot.

The free concerts offer a wide range of genres. This year's programme includes blues, Celtic music, folk, New Orleans brass band, opera, ragtime, R&B, reggae, rock, ska, soul, swing and waiata.

Parking is limited but you can take the number 3 bus from the city centre, ride your bike or catch the cable car up to the Botanic Gardens.
