This event has probably been and gone!
Saturday 9 February
7:30pm – 9:00pm Hudson and Halls: tragedy and triumph
On stage, in front of a camera, in life and in death, the inseparable Hudson and Halls rewrote our recipes for life and love. Long before homosexuality was decriminalised, they introduced New Zealand television audiences to high-camp cooking, yet they never said a public word about the great issues of the time: HIV and Homosexual Law Reform. In this rollicking live chat event, best-selling author Joanne Drayton will serve sweet avocado pies and talk about her new book, Hudson and Halls: The Food of Love with superchef Peter Gordon and actor Todd Emerson, who played David Halls in the hit show, Hudson & Halls Live!
Chaired by the witty and charming Jeremy Hansen.
Sample the cooking too: Sweet Avocado Pies will be on offer.

Bar open from 5pm. Please arrive 15 minutes before show start time.
