A time to celebrate, reflect, and prepare.
If you’re a bit like us and wondering how it’s July already, maybe it’s a good time to take a break this weekend and celebrate Matariki.
After all, Matariki is a time of reflection (remembering and honouring those we have lost), celebration (celebrating the present and giving thanks for what we have), and preparation (looking forward to the future and the promise of a new year).
Check out what's going on in your area - we're sure there will be some pretty great celebrations, events, and performances that you won't want to miss out on.

We are stoked to be performing alongside Unity Wara at our local events in New Plymouth and Stratford. If you’re in the area, come and celebrate with us, check out what we’ve been working on, and please, come say hi!

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT - LUMI PRO
We absolutely adore LED props and the brightness they bring to any evening flow session. And you know what we love even more? LED props that don't require single-use batteries!
Threeworlds have developed some pretty awesome LED props, and their LUMI Pro range brings you the light up goodness you've come to know and love, with the addition of being rechargeable - how cool!
Lumi Pro Rechargeable LED Poi
Designed in Australia with colour modes inspired by nature, these durable LED poi are made to be played with.
Super strong, easy to use, and now collapsible AND rechargeable, you’ll want to take your Lumi LED staff everywhere you go!
Designed in Australia with colour modes inspired by nature, this super bright staff is built for night-time fun.
This staff comes packed with 2 super bright LED units that illuminate the full length of the staff and 6 pre-set colour modes, with a comfy, non-slip silicone grip.
Recharge your staff via USB, or if you want instant power, easily change batteries without screws to fiddle with.
WINTER SALEWe’ve got our Winter Sale happening now with discounts on our own range (Fire & Flow NZ made products) and DIY parts. Don't miss out on a mid-winter bargain!
WHAT’S ON FOR THE FLOWMIES?
Winter is Passing
Aongatete Lodge - Tauranga
This mid-winter festival will warm you up as you juggle and pass during the day, and chill in front of the fire with board games and friends in the evenings. Tickets are still available.
BATS and Circa Theatre - Wellington
This 10-day festival celebrates and showcases solo performers, plus offers up a range of workshops for those looking to upskill. It’s Tahi’s 5th birthday this year, so head along and help them celebrate.
To team up with our Product Spotlight, we’re highlighting our sensational staff article - Isn’t a Staff Just a Stick? - where we travel back to ancient China and Japan, France and of course, our very own home, Aotearoa, to learn about the history of this well-known prop.
Did you know, the most spins of a fire staff in one minute is 188?! Pretty impressive if you ask us! Grab a cuppa and check out the article for more fascinating staff facts.

Here’s whats Lachlan from Auckland thinks about the LUMI Pro Rechargeable Staff:
“Fantastic! Love the dual charger, love that it's compact for travelling, colour/light options are great and it's easy to use.”
We couldn’t agree more, Lachlan!
