Stonehenge for London’s Cultural Olympiad, the gates of the Kremlin, the banks of the River Thames and the Hue Bridge have all been awash in renowned French fire-artists Carabosse’s golden glow. This summer, it’s Auckland Domain’s turn.

Using flaming flower-pots and cool cast-iron contraptions, Carabosse, with music resonating throughout the night, transform familiar spaces into otherworldly fire-gardens. Roam through blazing landscapes, pass by hand-made metallic inventions and be warmed by red-hot charcoal as these musicians, dreamers, metal-workers, storytellers and old-soul fire-brands create a fairground of fire where you can set your deepest imaginings free.

As the sky darkens and the night closes in, bring your nearest and dearest together round the flames beneath Auckland Domain’s native and exotic trees. Take paths less travelled, wander at will and let the heat, light and aural delights of these wizards of fire touch your heart and fill up your senses.
