Please come and join us for an evening of entertainment and friendship. The Village Gathering is a not-for-profit community event held a few times a year to facilitate networking and friendships and to enjoy good food and a variety of entertainment. All are welcome so please tell your friends!

6.30 pm Doors Open. Acoustic music provided by a very
talented line up including violinist Murray van Hoorn, keyboardist Derek Tole and guitarist Bryn Driver

7.15 pm Pot luck dinner with music provided by the always brilliant musician/songwriter Phil Toms

8.15 pm Snatches of poetry from 4 of Auckland's top poets: Harry the Dead Poet, Shane Hollands, Leanne Rattray and Annora Gollop.

8.45 pm Concert featuring BRANIU
Angela Fox recruited the help of friends Stu Grimshaw (bass) and Kim Robertson (vocals, guitar) with whom she had been jamming separately for some time, for a gig at The Bunker.The experience proved so enjoyable for the trio that they decided to keep experimenting and expanding their repertoire for the sheer pleasure of it. Thus the new band "Braniu" was born.
The Village Gathering performance will be the last blast and the 4th gig for the band. With Kim having moved to the far North and Angela soon to move to Taranaki, Braniu, although decidedly ephemeral, is still intent on making the most of it while they can. Don't miss this last opportunity to see this fantastic trio. Their beautiful harmonies and engaging songs
will really knock your socks off!

9.45 pm Dance or chill to World Music tracks played by DJ Poet's Shaddow

11.00 pm Tea And coffee and community clean up.

Entry: Suggested donation $10 plus a can of food for Auckland City Mission.
Please bring a dish of food for the dinner or desert. Those not able to bring food will be expected to do the dishes thank you!
