The Nelson Pun Battle Championships

Get ready to groan! Wits have been sharpened, wea-puns will be wielded, funny bones may well be broken. Will our competitors pun-ble under the pressure?! After sold-out and truly cringe-worthy shows all over NZ, Pun Battle is hitting Nelson again with worse word-play than ever before. Come along this August to see Nelson’s smartest alecks, wordiest nerds and biggest pun-ks, punslingers and pun-dits battle it out in an intense and hilarious head-to-head pun-off. With over $400 (!) cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing. One night only! Book on
