This Full Moon join the War on Boredom for a stupendous collision of events - Gong & Dong!

What is Dong? - It's an adult toy party starting at 7pm run by Whangarei's very own The Red Room. Featuring all your favorite dongs in all shapes and sizes!

What is Gong? - It's a no holes barred, user generated content show packed full of the unexpected.

So come witness original feats of daring! Revel in the permissive atmosphere. Go deep, go far, go there with Music, Comedy, Poetry, Dance, Circus or whatever forms of expression take to the stage~

Become part of, or simply be astonished by the awesome and stupendous Gong show!

Conceived in the creative hotbed of Whangarei’s Butter Factory seven years ago, Gong has had hundreds of performances breaking new ground to thousands of revellers. It’s a bawdy, deep and unpredictable user generated content show for you to witness or experiment with original material across all performance genres.

Hosted by the nefarious Peter Larsen, this uncensored show is intended to be outright war on boredom.

It's a Gong show. Anyone can and is, liable to be gonged. Typically there are three reasons to be gonged:
- Unoriginal content will be instantly gonged with no reward from the bar.
- Time pressure: There are lots of performers and we have limited time.
- The audience have disengaged – the onus is on you to entertain!

Performers are given a decent opportunity to perform and the Gong is used with a generous spirit!

We will provide a mixer, PA and two mics. We've got a simple drum kit, a bass guitar and an acoustic. Rock up with your stuff if you want.

If you're a musician or have a band, then turn up with the bare necessities and do one, two or a few.

If you want to do any kind of original performance at all you can turn up on the night and we’ll give you the limelight.

Got any questions? Leave em here and we'll answer 'em as best we can.

Always Free. Always Unexpected.
