Mid-Winter Music

Don't miss our final Mid-Winter Music session on August 13 at 1pm. 

The free weekend afternoon music sessions will finish with energetic rock group the Mercy Gates Youth Band. 

A love for music, friendship and networking in the community led to the establishment of the group in 2016. 

The grassroots for the band goes back to the nation of India. Each member of the band has a unique Indian culture within them based on the part of India they come from. The group has members from all corners of India like Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Gujrat and Calcutta.  Most of the band members have experienced their journey into New Zealand as students, who have then gone onto graduating and now successfully calling NZ their homes. Their passion for music brings them together, and their love for people encourages them to network to develop friendships.

As part of their annual students music event, the band are partnering with the Maritime Museum to share stories of resettling into New Zealand as immigrants. Join us for a time of sharing stories through rock music, conversations and developing new friendships.
