At the end of the Dawn service on the 25th of April, held at Hyde Park corner, Ngāti Rānana, will lead a mass performance of the WWI Waiata ‘E Pari Rā ’.  We want as many people as possible to join us for this special occasion. You don’t need any experience only enthusiasm!

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the devastating Cyclone Pam. You can help by donating to a registered charity. The Red Cross and UNICEF are both accepting donations. 


Planning to come to the UK to get married or enter into a civil partnership?  Whether you’re marrying someone already here in the UK – of any nationality – or both coming over to have a dream wedding, do your research before taking that flight.  The laws have changed.


On Anzac Day 2015, we will commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC landings in Gallipoli.


Applications for invitations to attend the Royal Garden Parties are now open and will close at 9.00am (UK time) on Tuesday 17 February, 2015.


Wherever you are in the UK, we wish you the best and hope you have a  chance to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Waitangi Day.
