The Event

F HER18216 Christmas Festival Poster A4 2 HIGHWelcome in the festive season by attending Highwic’s Christmas festival on November 19th and 20th.

Happening in the heart of Newmarket in Auckland, Highwic’s  festival offers a very pleasant way to spend a day.

We have four scheduled tours with gardening guru Dr Keith Hammett who will introduce visitors to some of Highwic’s gardening delights,” says the Manager of Highwic, Cheryl Laurie. 

“Because of the popularity of Keith’s tours in the past, we’ll be pre-selling tickets –Just email us to book” 

A miniature Christmas Garden Competition for children will be judged by no less a person than Santa Claus. Each entry will earn a free admission ticket for an adult accompanying the child. Best to book in for this also as space is limited. 

“We’ll also be offering a stream of live entertainment throughout the festival to provide Christmas spirit, including maypole dancers and carols by ukelele” says Cheryl. Our guest florists will decorate the house in style with extra special arrangements. 

Meanwhile in the kitchen of this 19th century carpenter gothic building, the coal range will be churning out cakes and other goodies ready to be decorated.

“People can also do some Christmas shopping at the Highwic Christmas Shop onsite, and Santa has advised us that he’ll be here on both days between 11.30am and 3.30pm,” says Cheryl. 

The Christmas Garden Festival takes place on November 19 and 20 (10am-4.30pm); Admission – adults $10 per person, accompanied children free. Concession entry for pre-booked groups - $8 per person.
