Mates Out Late

Mates Out Late is an exclusive event to celebrate our wonderful community of loyal and supportive MOTAT Mates!

Date & Time

25 Mar 2023 | 5:30pm - 9:00pm


Mates Out Late is an exclusive, free, family-friendly evening event for just our MOTAT Mates members. It's one extra way for us to show our love and appreciation for our Mates. We warmly invite all our Mates members, and anyone who becomes a member this month, to come and enjoy the fun.

Please join us and your MOTAT Mates whānau on Saturday 25 March from 5:30pm-9pm, for this exciting night at the Aviation Hall, Motions Road.

From storytelling to a silent disco, hoola hooping and UV face painting, this will be a night you won't forget! 

Bring your bike and get to the Pimping Station early to bling up your ride, ready for the Sunset Bike Rave at 7:30pm. 

Don't have a bike? Grab your scooter, rollerskates - any wheels of your choice - and join the fun. There will be limited bikes available for use on the night, or let someone else do the pedalling and jump on a Tuk Tuk. 

Put on your best disco, rave, 80's attire and be in to win - we'll have spot prizes for best dressed and most creative bike bling. 

Tour a train by torchlight, rediscover the Aviation Hall lit up like never before and snap a pic at the photo booth.  

Food vendors on Saturday will be El Patron - Artisan Chorizos and Ice Cream Social Ltd - real fruit ice creams.

You will need to present your Mates membership card on arrival. If you need a replacement card, just pop in to either MOTAT Great North Road or the Aviation Hall to get one.
