GREAT OUTDOORS: Films will be screened in Silo Park this summer.

After the madness of Christmas and New Year dies down, Silo Park will continue to be the place to relax this summer.

Just two days before Laneway Festival, the public space at Wynyard Quarter is set to host Silo Sessions curated by the international event's organisers.

On January 26 local bands SJD, Ghost Wave, Tom Lark and Sal Valentine & the Babyshakes will be joined by Tigertown from Australia for an afternoon of music, food and markets.

The free concert is just part of an ongoing summer programme for the public space.

Silo Cinema will return on January 11, with Wes Anderson's hit film Moonrise Kingdom, before classics like Top Gun and The Sound of Music - handpicked by Mayor Len Brown - run the following Friday nights.

Already confirmed for the February schedule are a Waitangi Day screening of the Bob Marley documentary Marley, and The Princess Bride on Valentine's Day.

Every weekend the Silo Markets will operate, with food, alcohol and crafts.

Silo Park is currently the home for a giant advent calendar featuring 25 images including artwork by New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell.
