Did you know:

that the Animalympics book is divided into 17 days?

that the Olympics closing ceremony is on 8 August?

that the Paralympics opening ceremony is on 24 August?

that 8-24 August is 17 days?

That coincidence could not be ignored! So Josie has put together the Animalympics 2021 programme!

Maui Waui Festival

Maui Waui is a 3 day international festival of music, performance and arts. It is fast becoming one of the most exciting festivals in the area, pulling in accomplished and undiscovered bands and performers from all around the globe. Maui Waui focuses on an all-welcoming family feel with loads to do for children and adults, from watching world class bands, full circus shows in a dedicated circus tent, big bass dance tents, small upbeat bands and acoustic acts, cabaret and comedy.  There is a dedicated children’s area with so many fabulous activities and I’m thrilled to be a part of this with an Animalympics story-time and craft session on the Saturday of the Festival.

Grab a ticket for the Festival, and once inside, all activities are free! Chidlren under 13 get free entry to the festival too!
