If you're looking for a knock out Christmas function this year then Thriller is it!

What better way to celebrate the arrival of the festive season than by showing your support for our brave local contenders and the Branches Charitable Trust.

Now in its 7th year and always a sell-out, the Thriller is not only regarded as a “must do” event on Queenstown’s annual social calendar but is also heralded as one of the top charity boxing events in New Zealand. 

This year will once again see bow ties and ball gowns collide with blood, sweat and boxing as well known Queenstowners take to the ring for one spectacular night of glitz, glamour. and good old-fashioned pugilistic glory.

From rugby players and real estate agents to mums and musicians, we’ve had Queenstowners from all walks of life take part in the Thriller. We’ve had some cracking face-offs between tourism heavy weights such as Shotover Jet, NZSKI, AJ Hackett, NZone, Magic Memories and Skycity Queenstown Casino. We’ve had Bar versus Bar, Bouncer versus Bouncer and Radio versus Newspaper. We’ve had a battle of the beauty therapists and the ultimate battle of the basin between Wakatipu and Arrowtown Rugby.

This year has seen 65 applicants put themselves forward, of which 37 were taken into our Contender Bootcamp and 18 have now ben chosen to fight on November 26th. To get an insider's view, like us on facebook and see our "shots of the day" from training and stay up to date with everything that is happening in the land of Thriller. And don't forget to support your contenders by donating to their give-a-little pages online - all proceeds go to Branches Charitable Trust. And stay tuned for the announcement of our fantastic auction items that will go under the hammer on the night.
