What’s on: July in Otago

The winter school holidays are almost here! Thankfully, you and the kids can have a ball, with this selection of family-friendly events.

Sing along to your faves from the Disney Moana soundtrack - when the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra performs with Te Vaka dance group, in Songs of Moana, 8 July, at the Dunedin Town Hall.

Go Beyond is the NZ International Science Festival theme, from 6 – 15 July. With 220 events to inspire and engage every age, that’s the first week taken care of!

Mid-holiday, ‘take a kid to footy’ and cheer on the Highlanders against the Rebels, starting 5:15pm on 14 July. Then, damn! Don’t miss out on tickets to see hip hop superstar Kendrick Lamar play Forsyth Barr Stadium, Tuesday, 17 July in his The Damn. Tour. If, however, you prefer your dance more traditional, then cover your ankles with your best Victorian era evening attire, book a babysitter, and get yourself tickets to the Annual Winter Ball at Larnach Castle, 20 July.

The 104-Storey Treehouse will be a back-to-school treat for fans of Treehouse books, as Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, perform tales and live drawings from their latest book, after school on 23 July.

Finally, get your lanterns and light-hat designs ready to celebrate winter in Central Otago, with live music, mulled wine, fun competitions and entertainment, at Light Up Winter at the Cromwell Mall, from 4:30 to 8:30pm, Friday 27 July.
