The team at the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival have gone outdone themselves cramming the schedule full of performances and events. Make the most of this annual extravaganza and take a look at our picks for the closing week:
Law and order versus chaos and change: this retelling of an ancient Biblical story is a family feud of epic proportions. Directed by (and starring!) Blair Strang and written by award-winning playwright Albert Belz. We're predicting you'll debate this one all the way home.
- Thursday 27 Feb, 6pm / Friday 28 Feb, 6pm / Saturday 29 Feb, 6pm
- Tickets from $35 Book online now
Singer-songwriter Nadia Reid's soulful South Island folk has amassed fans from around the world, such as the Sunday Times UK: “The self assurance of Reid’s voice, artfully undermined by the lyrics, announces an artist wise beyond her years.” Will she make you cry? Maybe. Will anyone mind? Nope.

The final night of the Festival promises to be one of its most innovative and edgy. Encircled by speakers in the Picturesque Garden, you'll be immersed in the pop-electronica creations of Annabel Alpers and Adam Cooke, the Baltimore-based duo known as Hamerkop. As the band said themselves "it’s CRAZY the amount of sound equipment we need... so yeah... hear it while you can".
