Well, here we are again. The start of a new month and I'm sure we're all thinking the exact same thing... how on earth are we already in May?!
But, before you prepare for total hibernation as we quickly approach the first day of winter, don't miss out on all the epic things there are to see and do this month.
So, instead of making small talk with your workmates about how quickly the year is flying by, impress them with your spontaneous weekend adventures by trying out one of these ideas when your working week comes to a close.
Check out our top ten things you won't want to miss this month, here:
1. Check out a play at the Pop Up Globe Theatre at Ellerslie Racecourse.
2. Join in the Cinco de Mayo celebrations by heading along to a Margarita masterclass.
3: Get competitive at Bitchin’ Bingo.
4: Watch the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales which releases on May 25. Chuck it in your calendar and make the visit to the theatre, Johnny Depp will always be worth it.
5: See Julia Jacklin live on the 27th of May.
6: Spoil mum at one of the many Mother’s Day High Tea events:
7: Let yourself feel captivated by artwork from Tate. Encounter the human form in The Body Laid Bare: Masterpieces from Tate, Auckland Art Gallery’s major exhibition for 2017.
8: Laugh out loud at the NZ Comedy Fest
9: Experience the magic of the Moulin Rouge at Cabaret De Paris.
This month I urge you to make the most of your days, get out there and try something new!
May the Force be with you!
