Davey Hughes small image twoThis will be an evening not to be missed, with special guest Davey Hughes from Swazi Apparel.

He has hunted caribou in the Arctic Circle, grizzlies in Alaska and buffalo in Tanzania. He’s the bane of Customs officials’ lives, runs the gruelling Coast to Coast each year, and is the man behind the highly-successful Swazi outdoor clothing label; he’s a passionate conservationist and he sure knows how to spin a yarn or two. Davey Hughes - aka the Swazi Man - is many things, but one thing he’s most certainly not is conventional.

Davey lives life to the full, but what underpins all of this is his absolute love of New Zealand: “It’s about family, it’s about business and it’s about the people of this nation. He Tangata.”
