THE ART DECO TRUST IS PROUD TO PRESENT THE NAPIER ART

DECO FESTIVAL 2019 PROGRAMME & EVENTS.
 

Cover-for-Website-lr-745

We have a lot to thank the 1931 Napier residents for. At almost 10.47am, on the 3rd of February 1931, their lives were changed forever. Little did they know that the choices they would make from that day forward, would elevate Napier from an idyllic coastal New Zealand town, to a world renowned, architectural, cultural and historical Mecca for Art Deco.

 Mail me the Programme

As a Charitable Trust we need to cover our costs therefore if you would like the Programme mailed to you we would kindly ask you go through our online shop to contribute to the postage and handling fee.

Preferential booking for Art Deco Trust members

The first to receive Festival programme each year are Art Deco Trust Members. They will also get a preferential booking of the Festival events for approximately a week prior to the public sales. To find out more about becoming a member please fill your membership request here.
