Come along and help us celebrate five years of the Weta Cave here in Miramar, Wellington!

With activities running through-out the day, as well as visitations by some very special and ‘unexpected’ guests, this is a Birthday Party not to be missed.

At 11 am, Hermes the Blue Tongued skink will be visiting. A frequent visitor to our store, he has had the immense pleasure of scaring, as well as endearing, many of our customers.

Learn how to make your own chainmail from 12pm with one of Weta’s former chainmail technicians – Elise Brown. Find out how our chainmail differs from that worn by knights in eras past, and have a go at creating your own Chainmail Keyring (a small charge to cover cost of material applies).

At 1pm – get your personalised Bilbo’s ‘One Hundred and Elevenses Birthday’ Party invitation, crafted by 3 Foot 7’s resident cartographer and calligrapher, Daniel Reeve. Be the first to own this unique Prop Replica from The Lord of the Rings and have it personalised by Daniel who will be in-store to sign his range of Maps and Prints.

From 2pm, join Richard Taylor and Tania Rodger, along with the Weta Cave crew (as well as a special ‘unexpected’ dwarven guest) in the blowing out of candles and cutting of cake in celebration of the Weta Cave’s 5th Birthday. Meet two of the founders of Weta, and take this opportunity to get your favourite collectible signed.

Plus We haves some Exclusive In-store specials only available on the day – including (but not limited to) price discounts on our high end Prop Replica Thorin’s Map, Exclusive Thorin Oakenshield 1/6 Scale Statue, as well as our latest The Hobbit Chronicles book – ‘Creatures and Characters’.

And a Birthday would never be complete without prizes, so please come along as we will have special lucky prize draws for customers who make a purchase during the day.
