Back Benches Changes Venue

For the next three weeks, Wallace and Damian will be bringing the Beehive to the barstools at The Shepherd’s Arms Speights Ale House, Tinakori Road, Thorndon. If you’re in the neighbourhood on a Wednesday from 8pm, pop in to be part of the LIVE audience.

Due to a fire at the Backbencher pub in Wellington on Thursday 7 June, which means that venue is temporarily closed for business, Back Benches will be at The Shepherd’s Arms Speights Ale House, Tinakori Road, Thorndon for the next three weeks.

Self-professed political junkies, Wallace Chapman and Damian Christie, will get to the heart of the big issues as MPs and political mavericks rub shoulders with spectators.

Back Benches is TVNZ 7’s LIVE weekly pub politics show that attempts to demystify the world of New Zealand politics by making it accessible and fun.

If you can’t make it to the The Shepherd’s Arms Speights Ale House, fear not – you can watch it LIVE on TVNZ 7, Wednesday at 9.05pm.
