Celebrate ANZAC Day with "Doing their Bit" at The Granary, Founders Park

This ANZAC Day, prepare for a journey back in time with Histrionics’ latest offering, “Doing their Bit”, a captivating programme set to unfold at The Granary, Founders Park. From 10.00am to 3.00pm on April 25th, 2024, this event promises an extraordinary blend of fun, interaction, and education, unlike anything you've experienced before.

ANZAC Day, a day of remembrance and honour for all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations, is set to come alive in a most engaging way. “Doing their Bit” invites you to step into the shoes of remarkable characters from New Zealand history, who made significant contributions during times of conflict. These aren't just stories of the past; they're lessons in courage, resilience, and the spirit of contribution that defines the ANZAC legacy.

Imagine wandering into The Granary and being greeted by characters who've stepped right out of the annals of history. These aren't mere impersonations; they're vibrant, living representations of those who "did their bit" when it mattered most. Through interactive dialogues, these characters will share their experiences, drawing you into a world that feels both distant and strikingly relevant.

But that's not all. Histrionics understands that history is best learnt when you're part of the story. That's why each character is accompanied by a team member, also in period costume, ready to guide children and families through an activity connected to that era. Whether it's learning to send coded messages, understanding the significance of rationing, or even trying your hand at a wartime recipe, these activities promise to be as educational as they are entertaining.

“Doing their Bit” is more than just a walk down memory lane; it's an opportunity to engage with history in a way that’s interactive and immersive. Designed for all ages, it promises to be a day where history buffs, families, and curious minds alike can come together to explore, learn, and pay tribute to the ANZAC spirit.

So, mark your calendars for April 25th, 2024, and don’t miss the chance to be part of this unique ANZAC Day celebration. Whether you're coming to honour the memory of those who served, to learn something new, or simply to enjoy a day out with a difference, “Doing their Bit” at The Granary, Founders Park is the place to be. Let’s keep the spirit of ANZAC alive for generations to come by doing our bit to remember and learn from our history. See you there!
