We regret to advise that, following careful consideration, a decision has been made to postpone the New Zealand Tattoo.
While the Tattoo was to feature a large number of New Zealand’s top pipe and brass bands and kapa haka, a significant part of the event was to feature military displays that included firearms and explosives.
Following the recent events in Christchurch, Palmerston North City Council considers it would be inappropriate to host an event of this nature.
We regret the inconvenience or disappointment this brings for those who have already purchased tickets, but we are confident they will support our view that this is the right thing to do.
Keep an eye on this page for updates.
