Support for low decile schools to attend Sleeping Beauty

Low decile (deciles 1-5) schools in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland can access additional support to attend Sleeping Beauty thanks to the generosity of the Four Winds Foundation.

For $5 per student or teacher we offer a ticket to the show and fully subsidised transport to the venue.

To ensure that as many schools as possible can enjoy this opportunity, the RNZB reserves the right to limit the number of tickets per school.
*There is limited availability for this offer: seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis – book asap so you don’t miss out!
