From Mãori performances to concerts, there is always something to do for Kiwis looking to connect to their culture and country. London hosts a huge community of New Zealanders, therefore there are plenty of cultural - and other - events to enjoy as a community.

Fancy Dresses for Charity

This New Zealand Society that gets together to raise awareness for charities while connecting people from the country socially is often holding events in different places catering to different tastes. From Charity Balls to Society Ale Tours, there is always something to do with the Society.

Good Old NZ Rock

New Zealand musician and rockstar Dave Dobbyn is back in London this year for a concert on October 28th at the Islington Assembly Hall. One of the most prolific musicians from Down Under, Dobbyn sold out his gig last year and Kiwis asked to bring him back.

Tackle and Carry On

Without a doubt, rugby is New Zealand’s signature game - although it was originated in the UK. However, for those hardcore fans of the game, you can catch a taste of the London Rugby League games.

Recognising New Zealand’s Fashion Designers

If you’re into fashion, you can try to snatch a ticket for London Fashion Week, where New Zealand designer Emilia Wickstead will be showcasing her work which offers a modern twist on classical couture.

Taika Waititi is one of New Zealand’s most recognised film directors (he is currently directing Thor: Ragnarok with Australian movie star Chris Hemsworth), perhaps right after Sir Peter Jackson. His career is a testament of the talent which brews within the country’s borders. His new film Hunt for the Wilderpeople will finally be showcasing in London. Get a taste of New Zealand talent by watching the film at the theatre.

Waitangi Day Festivities

Every February there is something happening in London for Waitangi Day. Whether it is the Circle Line Pub Crawl, the Weekender at Gigalum or the Charity Ball, New Zealanders know how to make their country’s day a huge event abroad. You can find more information on each nearing the date.
