HSBC Wellington Sevens
Westpac Arena: 28-29 January 2017
New Zealand is arguably the home of rugby. Nowhere is it celebrated, enjoyed or played by such a high percentage of the population than here on our shores. For this reason, when the HSBC Sevens come to Wellington, it feels like the whole city goes into carnival party mode. For the whole weekend, people dress up and fill the streets with laughter and colour - it is a great time to be in Wellington!
This year, the Wellington Sevens event continues to evolve by bringing chefs from Wellington's top international restaurants to the party to add a touch of class to the menu. There is also live music from Kings, nomad, Maala, Nesian Mystik, The Koi Boys and General Lee to sing and dance along to.
The event also continues to strive to become a family event, with the southern stand dedicated to families, with free lunch-boxes, face painting and other family activities.
So if you haven't been before or have not been for a while, then this year is the year to come and join enjoy this festival of international rugby!
