The annual Art n’ Tartan wearable art show in Waipu will only be held if Northland is moved to Alert Level 1 in time.
Producer Claire Drake says a limit of 100 attendees for the show would not be commercially viable, and it would have to be cancelled.
The show has already been postponed to Friday, November 12, and Saturday, November 13. Claire says a final decision about whether to hold it will have to be made by October 25.
Typically, the show would see 400 to 500 ticket holders and could not go ahead without at least an audience of 350.
Meanwhile, the show received a record number of entries this year. The format for adult entrants has been streamlined. There is just one open category with just one rule – entries must include tartan.
The competition also includes a children’s section with a “wonderful wanderers of the deep ocean” theme.
Alert levels permitting, there will be three shows across two days with tickets ranging from $55 to $70 for adults and $30 for children. See www.eventfinda.co.nz.
