Need a reason to get off the couch and out of the house? How about 106? Auckland Fringe Festival is back with a plethora of events - and it's bigger and zestier than ever before.
Backed by enormous team of 480 contributing artists, and spanning 45 venues across Auckland, the biennial Fringe festival is no doubt a highlight of the vibrant Auckland arts scene. Fringe seeks to celebrate the diverse, the innovative and the bizarre to take you to the "fringes" of your imagination.
Between the 21st February and 12th March, Auckland will teem with live poetry, drama performances, improvised comedy and films. Watch real cats perform at Catacular, join an open air ballet class with Barre None. Sail on board a New Zealand first - The Floating Theatre- or bust out your best double dutch at the AKL Skipping Club.
Added bonus - 35% of the events are free or koha entry. To get amongst, check out the full event calendar here.
