Museum to put on big family show tomorrow

Up to 5000 people are expected to experience ''electrifying entertainment, crazy acts and live music'' during The Big Get Together, the Otago Museum's annual family fun event, tomorrow.

The ''Get Together'', to be held from 11am-4pm, would offer something for the whole family, museum marketing and development co-ordinator Juliet Pierce said. The free entertainment for all ages would range from ''fabulous face-painting to explosive science shows''.

The attractions would include Wellington performers Gerry Paul and the Elephant Tree Band and Auckland drumming group Drumania, science shows from the University of Otago chemistry department, theatre from Dunedin comedy group Improsaurus and an Animal Troupe parade.

Visitors will also be able to plant free kowhai trees in pots, and take them home to grow - thanks to backing from the Department of Conservation's Project Gold.
