Oranges at Halftime: Rugby and the Kiwi Experience

Oranges at Halftime: Rugby and the Kiwi Experience

Thursday, September 08, 2011 10:00 AM - Friday, September 09, 2011 04:00 PM

The relationship between rugby and Kiwi culture is explored in the free exhibition, Oranges at Halftime: Rugby and the Kiwi Experience, visiting towns throughout New Zealand during August, September and October as part of the REAL New Zealand Festival.

The touring exhibition Oranges at Halftime: Rugby and the Kiwi Experience gets stuck into this fascinating and sometimes surprising relationship. It celebrates the dads who coached nippers on the school field, the mums who washed the muddy shorts, the loyal fans on the sidelines in the rain, and the determined souls on the field playing their hearts out for their mates.

Features of the exhibition include:

  • Take on your friends and family and answer every question in the Halftime Challenge.
  • Add your story to Keith Quinn’s famous collection of anecdotes. A video kiosk inside the trailer allows you to share your favourite rugby tales with Keith.
  • Play selector and vote for the Grassroots XV, a team of quirky, cheeky and heroic characters from the lesser-known corners of Kiwi footy history.
  • Discover classic recipes that filled the tanks of NZ’s rugby legends before a big game.

 

Venue: TSB Hub carpark, Camberwell Road, Hawera
