NEED SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO?
As part of the Days of Ice programme and in association with our good friends at LAF, Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum is hosting a fundraising event on Thursday 21 October and Friday 22 October which is not to be missed! Amateur historian and itinerant television globetrotter Te Radar presents Antarcticana, an illustrated comedic lecture on all things Antarctic. With a rich visual presentation of photographs, maps, film, and charmingly low-spec animations, Antarcticana proves that what we think we know about Antarctica is just the tip of the iceberg. Te Radar asks the questions you never thought to ask and provides answers you never wanted to know about the land that Capt. Robert Scott called “This Awful Place”. He also may shatter your illusions about the innocence of penguins.
Winner of both the Billy T Award, and the Fred Award for Comedy Excellence, Te Radar’s most recent TV outing was Te Radar’s Chequered Past which was nominated for Best Factual Series and Best Presenter at the NZTV awards. He has won many other TV, theatre, and writing awards, and in 2017 was awarded an honorary MA from Wintec for services to Media Arts.
A fundraising auction will be run by Te Radar during the intermission. Tickets ($30 tiered seating, $40 table seating) are available through LAF or through the Christchurch City Council. Days of Ice celebrates Christchurch’s unique connection with Antarctica. This year's programme has over 40 events and activities across 18 days in October.
