What we're about

Welcome!

This group is for people 30's-50's, who are interested in meeting new people and expanding their social network. Please think about hosting, it's not as scary as it seems, it's just being a contact point for details.

There are no gold coin donations required to attend any meet-ups at present, only the expectation that members will be courteous and change their RSVP's if no longer able to attend an event.

Three no-shows without explanation/notification will result in you being removed from the group. Harsh but your non-attendance means that someone else on a waitlist has potentially missed out plus it means someone has waited around for you!

Please also be aware that this is not a group designed to make romantic attachments! While you could meet someone and mutually decide to see where it goes, please do not misconstrue the politeness of others. Any threatening or predatory behaviour will result in removal and a lifetime ban.

Hope to see you soon,

Jo

PS ...Please note that our meet-ups are for adults only unless stated. We realise many of our members have children, but this group was started for people to socialize and network in an adult environment. Adding children to the mix, no matter how wonderful and amazing they are, will always change the dynamic of a group to some extent, and for some this is the only 'adult only' socialising they may have in their busy week.

🎺Synthony🎻- Electronic Dance Music and Light Show🎇

Spark Arena

Elemental AKL presents Synthony
** please buy your ticket once they become available ** https://synthony.com/auckland-2021/

Following the sell-out success of last year’s spectacular Synthony show, this euphoric dance event returns to Auckland for one night only.

Combining the immersive joy of electronic dance music with a spectacular light and laser show as well as the richness of a full orchestra, this is a magical and uplifting dance party experience.

A very special collaboration between orchestra, DJs, live vocalists and stellar musicians, Synthony features some of the best-loved dance tracks of the last 30 years - music that’s guaranteed to make you move.

This year also sees a new musical director taking up the baton, with Dick Johnson promising to deliver a fresh, transcendent version of the show fans already know and love.

With its roots firmly in Aotearoa, Synthony showcases local culture and heritage as it takes party-goers on an inspiring and uplifting orchestral journey.

OUTERFIELDS2021 UNVEILS AUCKLAND’S BIGGEST MUSIC LINEUP OF THE SUMMER

Outerfields2021 opens its gates for a 12 hour long dose of Aotearoa sounds and good times on Saturday 6 March 2021 at the central city Outer Fields at Western Springs.

The event proudly boasts an incredible live music lineup headlined by BENEE and Fat Freddy’s Drop along with premium food, bars and art. The day promises to cater to music fans of all stripes, mixing many of this country’s most acclaimed musical exports alongside the freshest names on the scene.

Like BENEE and Fat Freddy’s Drop; Aldous Harding, The Beths, Ladyhawke and Montell2099 have all had substantial international plans curtailed in 2020. Church & AP, Paige and Harper Finn have taken the chance to shine in the past few months and will be ready to fly when the borders open again.

The Outer Fields at Western Springs launched as a premier outdoor venue for the last Big Day Out and Auckland City Limits. Few who were there will forget sets by Snoop Dogg, Major Lazer and of course Grace Jones. The wide open green fields and treelined slopes have also hosted Mumford & Sons, Billy Idol and more in recent times.

Outerfields2021 runs for a full day, with more than 12 hours of music from gates at 10.30am till 11pm. The event is GA, all ages, and fully licensed with abundant food trucks and Auckland cuisine on offer amongst local artist installations, complementing the local sounds in the suburb.

All this goodness for an Early Bird ticket price of just $99.

Limited Early Bird Tickets go on sale at 12pm on Monday 16 November from ticketmaster.co.nz.

Vodafone customers can be the first to secure tickets during the Vodafone pre-sale from 12pm on Monday 9 November til 12pm on Wednesday 11 November.
