WOW - World of WearableArt


World of WearableArt Awards Show

The 2021 World of WearableArt Awards Show was set to be an exciting spectacle bursting with colour, creativity, surprise, and delight.  Sadly, the current COVID-19 outbreak in Aotearoa forced our hand and on 9 September we announced the cancellation of the 2021 Show season.

We have now closed off our automated refund process for the 2021 World of WearableArt Awards Show and everyone who requested a refund should have received it. Please check your bank account back as far as mid September as we processed the bulk of refunds from mid September to mid October. Any ticketholders who did not register a preference to transfer, gift or refund will have their tickets automatically transferred to our 2022 season.  If you have any additional queries about 2021 tickets please email our ticketing team

If you are a 2021 ticketholder, please read our FAQs for more information regarding
refunds, transfers, or gifting of your tickets. 

The story of WOW began more than thirty years ago and since then this much-loved homegrown arts company has become a global creative movement like no other. While this current chapter is incredibly challenging for us, it is by no means the end of the story. We will be back in 2022 and look forward to once again bringing artists and audiences together to celebrate creativity, possibility, and perseverance.

Performance dates & times

The 2022 WOW Awards Show season will run from Thursday 29 September – Sunday 16 October, 2022. The Show will take place at the TSB Arena, Wellington.

For the full calendar of performance dates and times, please see below.

If you have opted to transfer your 2021 tickets, all bookings will be transferred to the same (equivalent) performance week, day and time from your original 2021 booking to the 2022 Show.

For example: A booking for Saturday 9 October, 1.30pm 2021 is the Saturday matinee on Week 2. This booking will be transferred to the Saturday matinee on Week 2 in 2022: Saturday 8 October, 1.30pm 2022.
