Wheels of Justice:

WHEELS OF JUSTICE is a site-specific murder mystery play on bikes in the Wellington Fringe Festival produced by windy Performing Arts Ensemble (windyPAE).  You are invited to join the windyPAE detectives on a bicycle-riding investigation, centred around a seedy under-Welly. An interactive murder mystery, WHEELS OF JUSTICE brakes with theatrical convention by casting the audience as rookies and having them bike about town to solve this crime… so gear up! 

This site specific play is sponsored by BIKE BARN and Wellington Creative Communities, so set your wheels in motion and purchase tickets by emailing

Performances will start at the Bike Barn on Wakefield Street, so if the old bike requires a dashing new bell, a sturdy kick-stand or you fancy a flash new helmet, a mechanic will be on hand to help you get yourself road-worthy before the show begins. The show winds up at the Southern Cross on Abel Smith Street – riding can be thirsty work! 

In the meantime feel free to share the windyPAE Facebook page with your friends to make your ride all the more fun, and take a second to down shift and get a handle on our characters.

Tickets for Love-to-Rollers – $13

Campground Chaos:


Inspired by the classic Kiwi Holiday, a tradition of sunburnt pleasure and carefree hijinx in campgrounds, holiday parks and beaches all over New Zealand. Campground Chaos and the lively cast of Fuse Circus will bring you a summer holiday experience you will never forget!

Campground Chaos is a fast, funny and irreverent look at our very own Kiwi Culture, complete with tyre swings and flying picnic tables – circus equipment like you have never imagined before!
Campgrounds are a colourful meeting place for people of diverse backgrounds. Tourists and locals, thrown together under the summer sun amidst tents, caravans, rambling through bush and the beach. Fuse Circus invites you into their imaginative world, where all things are possible.

Bring your sunscreen, your deck chairs and your mates to enjoy this special all ages show, full of circus performance, physical theatre and 100% Kiwi music. Over the past five years Fuse Circus has built a wide public following, touring festivals and events nationwide and this show is sure to be a pearler!

Campground Chaos will be performed outside St Johns on the waterfront and is a busking show (eftpos available!) – 2pm start.
