Christmas Tree Concert in Hamilton’s Garden Place

It’s 27 metres tall to the tip of the star. That’s over 6 stories high. It takes a team of 15 people to install the frame and the lighting, fluff the branches and hang the baubles. This tree is huge! The tree dominates Garden Place once again in 2020 and will be a great focal point for the community to gather, watch, perform and celebrate the festive season. The tree will light up for the first time on Saturday 28th November 2020 with a special event that includes the opportunity to sing some favourite Christmas carols. The Christmas Tree continues to light up the December nights right through to New Year. This year we will be celebrating on Saturday 28th November 2020 SOURCE   https://youtu.be/OxFpab3Ja8g By Berry & Coffee

Lightshow in Hamilton Gardens by KALEIDO

KALEIDO is the animation creation headed by Paul Cleland and Jasmine Gill. This showcase of kaleidoscopic renewal is set to light up the Hamilton Gardens Italian Renaissance Pavilion come 2021’s Te Ruru Light Festival. With amazing animation sequences set to blow your mind and accompanying reactive sound, supplied by music producer Reuben Gilchrist. This projection will shatter the illusion of three-dimensional space by morphing a solid structure in front of your eyes and stretching the limits of what modern graphic design is capable of.

Available till they aint: Cheeseburger Spring Rolls

Yes, you read that right! Cheeseburger flavoured Spring Rolls or just exactly what it is, Cheeseburger spring rolls.  We were a little bit surprised to read that on the board and thinking, surely it must be two different orders. But it was not so we had to order them and give them a go... and we did not regret our decision! As advertised: "Pretty much the best thing ever. Mcd’s in a tasty little package" So if you find yourself in Hamilton, head over to the Bearded Weasel and get yourself this treat, if you like cheese burgers and deep fried things. It will definitely not disappoint you. https://www.instagram.com/p/CD0I__ssKr2/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
