Mardi Gras celebrations

  • Deaf Clubs
Auckland Deaf Society, about to close for a total building redevelopment, hosts a final social event: a Mardi Gras at the Deaf Club.

The Auckland Deaf Society holds its last big social event before it closes to undergo a complete rebuild of its offices and social club. The Deaf Club is packed with members celebrating Mardi Gras, full of costumes, performances, speeches and farewells to the clubrooms that hold decades worth of memories for its members and their families.
