The Tuia Stage

The Tuia Stage is a free 12 hour outdoor cultural showcase of performing artists from around The Coromandel featuring local artists - poets, storytellers, musicians, dancers and kapa haka groups, all delivering a story of what Tuia 250 means to them. 

The Raranga Tent situated next to The Tuia Stage will exhibit creations from Coromandel Weavers who will be demonstrating the art of weaving for members of the public of all ages to observe and to try. 

The Tuia Stage is an outdoor performance space, located at Taylor’s Mistake for the purpose of Tuia 250 commemoration activities.  Events on The Tuia Stage have been fully funded by Lotteries Tuia Programme and therefore are free to the public. Presented by Creative Mercury Bay

A meeting of peoples, a mixing of cultures,
a blending of heritage, a sharing of future
