Wellington Home and Garden Show

There were some good stands but seemed sparse for the area available for displays.  However, this may work better for the expected weekend crowds. Whilst there were a number of interesting items exhibited, we were disappointed that there was only one flooring stand (carpet only). Several stands employed presenters with microphones - some of them rather charming, who attracted patrons to their particular exhibit. There was food to taste - cheese, wine, chocolate, salt, seed etc - along with food being made with products that were for sale.

It wasn't as good a range of exhibits as we had expected but we realised that we were comparing it to the House and Home Show previously held at the TSB Arena.  But there were plenty of opportunities to win prizes, including a 46 inch wide screen TV!

There was some discussion about whether it was worth the entry fee, if you had to pay the full fee you may decide perhaps not - but two tickets for the price of one vouchers seem to be readily available (try Pak N Save).

Venue: Westpac Stadium
Dates: 18-20 November 10am-6pm (5pm on Sunday)
