Tonight's the night - the annual Auckland Lesbian Ball returns with a Nights on Broadway theme and brand new venue. Usually held at the Langham Hotel, the 26th annual Ball will be at the Hyatt Regency on the corner of Princes Street and Waterloo Quadrant near to the University of Auckland. This year's Ball attendees have been encouraged to dress in the 'Nights on Broadway' theme - be it Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Annie, The Sound of Music, Annie get your Gun, Grease, Mamma Mia, Chicago or even Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The change of venue has been made necessary by the Langham Hotel's on-going renovation of its ballroom and reception areas, making it impossible to use the ballroom until at least December, say the team at LESO lesbian support organisation. "They say a change is as good as a rest, so we checked out a number of different venues to make sure we maintained a high standard and the Hyatt came out on top," the Ball's organisers explain. "The hotel is centrally located with both on-site and street parking, a range of rooms to suit all budgets, several restaurants and the usual guest amenities."
