Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality offers you a rare opportunity to have an intimate and immersive encounter with some of the remarkable ancient terracotta warriors.
For more than 2,000 years, they secretly guarded the tomb of Qin Shihuang, China’s First Emperor.
Discovered by chance in 1974, the underground army is one of the greatest ever archaeological finds – and regarded by some as an eighth wonder of the world.
This landmark exhibition features eight warriors standing 180 centimetres tall, and two full-size horses from the famous terracotta army – as well as two half-size replica bronze horse-drawn chariots.

Hamlet - Summer Shakespeare
15 Feb 2019 (Fri) - 2 Mar 2019 (Sat)
The Dell, Wellington Botanic Gardens, 101 Glenmore St, Wellington
Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most dynamic plays, built around its compelling, chameleon-like central character. Our production of Hamlet will feature a woman, Stevie Hancox-Monk, in the eponymous lead role.
Part-ghost story, part-thriller, part-dark comedy, Hamlet moves at a breakneck pace towards a tragic conclusion. An innovative new interpretation of one of the world’s most enduring stories, Summer Shakespeare’s Hamlet is the perfect opportunity to experience the Bard at its best over a family-friendly picnic in the beautiful Dell, Wellington Botanic Gardens.
