Kia ora

Our movie fundraiser is coming soon, the LILAC Fair in April, Sketch Group, February Book Group and new titles arriving on opening day Thursday 12th January 

Holiday break 

LILAC opens for 2023 this week - Thursday 12th January 11am-2pm. Drop in then to refresh your holiday reading - we've added some outstanding titles to the collection recently so let's get them moving!

Movie fundraiser - Tar

Sunday 29th January 2023, 6pm - Light House Cuba, Wigan St
all tickets $25

"The international world of classical music viewed through a famed conductor’s preparations to record Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 might seem like rarefied subject matter, strictly for highbrow aficionados. But Tar is a mesmerizing character study, its fine-grained details extending with needling precision into the shadowy recesses between its oblique scenes. The key talking point will be Cate Blanchett’s astonishing performance — flinty, commandingly self-possessed and ever so slowly splintering under pressure." Holywood Reporter

It would be great to see you there, we really appreciate your support!

Lesbian Fair Saturday April 1st 2023 ... SAVE the date

LILAC have booked the Thistle Hall to hold a lesbian fair, partly as a fund raiser, but also as an opportunity for the community to gather and socialise. It will be a great opportunity for the arty and crafty amongst us to show or sell their creations. We’ll also have quality second-hand books, bric a brac, food, raffles and more. Lesbian organisations are welcome to host information stalls.

Fill in the Expressions of interest form to register your interest in having a stall.

If any members are keen to help us organise the fair, please contact a Collective member or email lilac@lesbian.net.nz
