Chris Priestley and the Unsung Heroes

2 Oct 2022
Sunday 2 October, 6pm
Chris Priestley & The Unsung Heroes presents a unique and entertaining evening filled with the stories of New Zealand’s settler past.
Event type: 
General Admission: $35 / Concession: $25
Pah Homestead
72 Hillsborough Road, Hillsborough, Auckland, 1042


Chris Priestley & The Unsung Heroes bring together the talents of well-known actors, performers, musicians and journalists in a fascinating musical concept filled with rogues, rebels and folk heroes.
They regale us with stories from Aotearoa's history in the form of theatre, music and song - including the tale of an attempted assassination right here at Pah Homestead!

A photographic slideshow of historic images as accompaniment, with, gorgeously evocative music and words, and Elliott’s old-style radio diction, sharp timing, and dry humour all predictive of ways we have come to see ourselves. Joining Chris Priestley are Cameron Bennett, Nigel Gavin, Peter Elliott and Sonia Wilson.


This event is part of Auckland Heritage Festival 2022
