In a Western Hills wonderland, on the edge of the Pukenui Forest, amid artisan dwellings, light and shadow come to play.

Returning from its one year slumber this September, Quarry Nights Festival of Light and Art (formerly FOLA) emerges again and sees The Quarry Arts Centre decorated and dazzled in an abundance of glimmer and glow.

Spanning three spring evenings, from dusk until late, Quarry Nights celebrates art, theatre, music, escape, feasting and family fun. Enter The Quarry Nights Village and see a host of hand-made illuminations, crafted creatures and quirky characters, all lit up by lamps, beams and starlight.

A glowing landscape of lanterns will mark the official opening of the festival, on Thursday 24th September at 6:30pm. Making their way from Mander Park to the festival village, all manner of folk are able to come along and be a part of the parade, with the creation of your own lantern making you a real part evening illuminations and entertainment.

A fantastical Friday filled with local talent will see and array of awesome artworks, theatrical performances from Company of Giants and music hosted by the Beagle FM Collective. Whangarei foods, trinket titbits and an assortment of arty activities will also be on offer to lucky locals, making for a truly merry and magical evening.

Bringing even more to the feasting table, Saturday 26th will see the inauguration of the Quarry Nights banquet, serving up 3 courses of hand-crafted cuisine, all enjoyed in the glowing grounds and hosted by a troupe of light laden performers. E Vwwalllah! Dinner with a difference.

Quarry Nights will take place on Thursday 24th, Friday 25th and Saturday 26th September, from 6:30pm – 10:30pm each night. Prices vary. Please check the website for further info.
