Nolan & Vada Win A Ring Competition


Aroha is in the air at Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF) 2021 and we have a special treat for all the lovers out there!

Buy a ticket to ANY AAF2021 show or event and enter the draw to win a $4000 voucher towards a bespoke handcrafted and ethically sourced ring by specialist jewellers Nolan & Vada.

To be in to win this luxurious prize, in a few words submit a short story about what aroha means to you, romantic or otherwise. Is it the love you have for your partner, a place in Aotearoa that holds special memories, family gatherings or staying at grandma’s, or your love of the sea or the forest, or even your first beloved pet dog?

Don’t forget, you’ll need to provide proof of purchase of a ticket to any AAF2021 show for the entry to be valid. With more than 70 shows and events celebrating aroha in all its forms, we know you’ll be spoilt for choice – and inspired to pay homage to love!

Here’s an example of a love story that caught our attention during AAF 2020:

“My partner and I met while travelling in India five years ago. Mutual friends put us in touch as they knew we were both wandering solo, but that soon changed! Now we’re engaged, and planning the rest of our lives together. Thanks to the cheekiness of pals, and an incredibly romantic backdrop we fell for each other and would love to celebrate with a ring that uniquely captures our story.”
