Due to the recent community outbreak of COVID-19 Omicron and the move to a Red Light COVID protection framework across Aotearoa, it is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the cancellation of the February offering of Te Tairawhiti Arts Festival.
You can take the girl out of Gisborne, but you can’t take Gisborne out of the girl!
Homecoming Queens Jackie Clarke (MNZM), Sandy Mill and Bronwyn Turei know that a life in the arts can take you all over the world, but all roads eventually lead to home.
These songbirds bring home a brand-new show inspired by memories of growing up in Gisborne, as well as cherry-picking songs from their illustrious and varied professional careers.
Bronwyn Turei the actor, Jackie Clarke the entertainer and Sandy Mill the songstress have carved out very different paths in the performing arts but share a love of singing, harmonies and a good groove.
Backed by a stonking band of local luminaries, expect a concert filled with soul and vocal artistry running on the unstoppable twin engines of love and home. Witness the phenomenon in concert and come party with our Homecoming Queens!
