‘Here comes the sun’ glitters at Glover Park

Published: 9 March 2020

Imagine listening to Let it Be, Yesterday and Hey Jude for the first time.

Imagine how it feels to hear classic Beatles songs played on acoustic guitar in the local pub without any knowledge of the backstory.

Auckland Council is screening hit movie Yesterday on a giant screen as Movies in Parks enters its final month. Come to Glover Park in St Heliers on Friday 13 March, settle in on your picnic blanket and watch the story of a world with Beatles amnesia unfold in one of Auckland’s most beautiful natural amphitheatres.

Immerse yourself in Beatlemania: sip a Beatles-inspired mocktail and test your Beatles knowledge with some quick-fire trivia questions before the movie starts at 8pm. Pre-movie entertainment starts at 5.40pm.

If Saturday night suits you better, Aladdin will screen at Lloyd Elsmore Park in Pakuranga on Saturday 14 March with the same start times.

In a summer-long series, Movies in Parks has been brought to the region by local boards and Auckland Council, supported by The Hits and nzherald.co.nz.

And for your Music in Parks fix this weekend, head to Flava Urban Beats at Hayman Park in Manukau on Saturday 14 March from 2pm to 6pm or Brass at the Falls: Kumeu Vintage at Falls Park in Henderson on Sunday 15 March from 2.30pm-4pm.

Award-winning stars P-Money and SWIDT are headlining Flava Urban Beats while it’s some of Auckland’s coolest saxophonists and super-talented brass instrumentalists bringing their sound to The Falls.

Brass at the Falls: Kumeu Vintage is the first of three Brass at the Falls shows coming to Falls Park three Sundays in a row. The other two on 22 and 29 March are Brass at the Falls: Royal NZ Airforce Band and Brass at the Falls: Waitakere Brass.

With just six shows left this summer, enjoy your favourite genre – anything from jazz, love songs and reggae to smooth contemporary harmonies - at Music in Parks until 11 April brought to you by Auckland Council, supported by iHeartRadio.
