We change the clock tower lighting for lots of reasons

  • National holidays, like Anzac Day
  • Popular symbolic or celebration days, like St Patrick's Day
  • As part of an event taking place in Te Marae o Hine The Square
  • Special requests from the Mayor or Chief Executive
  • Local celebrations, like a Turbos' win

Request a colour change on behalf of a registered charity

Registered charities can request lighting changes to mark national and international days of significance, like World Earth Day or the International Day of Disabled Persons.

Bookings are for 1 or 2 nights only, and made on a first-come, first-served basis.
