    Event description

    The Flying Canoe - family storytime

    Are you ready to take a trip on The Flying Canoe? Join comedian Bobby Macumber on an interactive adventure for families that explores the dynamic stories of Kiribati - our Pacific neighbour.

    Together you’ll meet some sassy, salty spirits, fend off giant mud crabs, and dive into crystal blue waters as you work towards helping Bobby’s cousin, Nei Kinoia, become a fully qualified magic spinner!

    Featuring an immersive soundscape, and traditional Kiribati singing and dancing, β€œThe Flying Canoe” is a playful way to experience the living history and the culture embedded in the lands and waters of the islands of Kiribati.

    So jump aboard β€˜The Flying Canoe’ and see things differently on island time. Tia nako – let’s go!
