Highwic Anniversary Picnic
Saturday, 27 February 2021
1.00pm – 4.00pm
Happy Anniversary Highwic!
On Friday 27th February 1981, Highwic was officially opened to the public by Colin Kay, Mayor of Auckland. 40 years later you are invited to celebrate Highwic’s opening anniversary on Saturday 27th February 2021, 1pm to 4.30pm.
Bring along a vintage style picnic to enjoy on the Tennis Lawn and relax with a bespoke cocktail or craft beer from the bar. Musical entertainment will be provided by well-known gypsy Jazz band VozNeuva. Do feel free to dress up in the attire of your favourite decade.
Over the coming weeks we will be publishing menus for picnics throughout the decades from the 1860s when Highwic was built until the 1980s when Highwic was opened to the public. Please check our Facebook page and website for these menus which will feature delicious delicacies such as ham, tongue, pigeon pie, and roast fowl.
This is not a ticketed event, but we will be gratefully welcoming donations to help look after Highwic. Normal entry to the house applies. Adults $10, accompanied children free.
Please note that only alcohol purchased on site may be consumed on the premises. Blue badge parking will be available on site with additional parking available close by in Newmarket.
