Events and Exhibitions Ngā Huinga, Whakakītenga

Enjoy the following events in the very special atmosphere provided by Alberton.

  • Taku toi kahurangi / My precious jewel 01/06/2019 - 30/06/2019

    Inseperable Huia 2016

    As part of the Auckland Festival of Photography 2019, Alberton is delighted to host Taku toi kahurangi / My Precious Jewel, a collection of photographic works and a site specific installation by celebrated New Zealand artist Fiona Pardington MNZM.

    Museums, archives, and historic places are both repositories of stories and versions of history that Pardington finds irresistible. Her photographs breathe life into inanimate objects, achieving what she describes as 'a radiant point of encounter – a punctum or a tear in the real from out of which steps a life revived, reconstituted or transubstantiated'.

  • Voxnova Gypsy Jazz Soiree 28/07/2019

    Voxnova

    Enjoy the ambiance at historic Alberton as the house comes alive for this special one off concert!   Inspired by a blend of vintage Romany and Latin jazz, Auckland band Voxnova deliver an innovative approach to Manouche, performing both original material and versions of folk tunes.

  • Midwinter Melodies: A baroque parlour concert 18/08/2019

    NZ Barok

    Following a sold out performance at Alberton last year, players from NZ Barok return for this delightful, light-hearted one hour concert, presenting an assortment of Baroque musical gems with a touch of history. 

    For this one-off concert, musicians Miranda Hutton, Janne Ensor, Wen Chuan Lin and Helen Brinkman will be joined by special guest soprano Rowena Simpson.
