For those not content to sit on the sideline there is also a fantastic line-up of traditional Maori games and workshops.

There will be coaches present to show you how to play and local artists available to teach their art to participants.

Activities will include kowhaiwhai painting, flax weaving, making of manu aute (kites), the principles of mau rakau (Maori weaponry), the making of koauau (type of flute), potaka (spinning tops) and traditional hand games.

With most of these workshops you will be able to take your art work home with you!
