Venue confirmed for competition

The venue we have used for the past few years - the Whitireia Peformance Centre in Vivian Street - is no longer available, owing to Whitireia's move to new premises in Dixon Street.  However, we are happy to announce that this year's competition on 12 May will be at the school hall at Wellington Girls College, in Pipitea Street.  That's the same venue we used 10 years ago.  Hope to see you there!
