Happy birthday to you, to me and to all of us! In 2018, the Capital E public programmes creative team asked children of Wellington what joy means to them. Exploring their ideas of pretty presents, fun family gatherings and playing party games, the Capital E team combined all the things children love about the arrival of the new year to produce Joy is… Birthdays, PlayHQ’s latest installation!

At Capital E this summer, every day is your special day! Create party invitations for your friends and whānau, dress up in crazy costumes, plan a picnic in the backyard and play party games in the Dream House, all decked out for a birthday celebration. 

Bring your child in on their birthday and they’ll get to wear the birthday crown! 

Free entry, Suits ages 3+

January 14 – April 1.

At Capital E, Wellington
