Here’s all you need to know about the Big Freeze in Wellington:
Lambton Quay: where it hits Grey Street. There’s a big shiny sculpture called ‘Invisible City’ – but what we’ll be doing is anything but invisible. Find some space to freeze in the pedestrian area between Espirit and the Air NZ Holiday shop, as far down as the two banks that sit on opposite sides. We’ll stretch out from that space on to the footpath of Lambton Quay in both directions.
Attention-seekers can also Freeze on the opposite side of Lambton Quay, outside the Body Shop and James Cook Arcade.
For a street-level image of the location you can check this map.
It’s going to be a very large crowd, so please spread out! If there’s snow or sleet we’ll freeze under the shop awnings, or you can be cool and freeze in the rain.
Please leave plenty of space for non-freezers to stream through and keep well away from traffic. Safety first.
1pm sharp. It’s good to arrive in the area at least 5 minutes earlier, but please keep moving till we Freeze. If you’re worried about being late, you can sync your timepiece with the official Freeze Clock. If you are late, we look forward to seeing you do an exceptional morph from running human to frozen human.
Freeze as you please! You’ll know when to freeze when you hear the saxophone. When the saxophone sounds again, our time is up. Resume motion and smile – you’ve Done Good.
Thanks for supporting united action on climate change this World Environment Day.
Now tell all your friends to come too!
