Fun!

Loved visiting on St Pats day and seeing all the action in town. Riff Raff square is a great space, with funky attention to detail. Cool spot!!

A must for fans of the musical, would have liked to see the statue in a more prominent position though.

This statue is in the centre of Hamilton to the side of the street so can be viewed from all angles. It has been weel done and is of interest to many.

The home again of Richard O'Brien, born in the UK, worked in Hamilton, back to the UK, and then back to New Zealand for got. This statue of Riff Raff celebrates his most famous work - The Rocky Horror Show

The riff raff statue has always made people look twice, used to sit slightly obscure position on Victoria Street to honour fact that Richard O'Brian (dual citizen of UK and NZ) found inspiration for 'The Rocky Horror Show' right here in the Tron. Recently the area has been upgraded with a great mural behind the statue and some amazing sculptures... More

Riff raff statue lit up with colourful lights at night, along with complete instructions to the time warp and spacy - themed toilet block. Quirky.

I had no idea that Hamilton had inspired the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I love the statue, the plaque and the explanation on how to do the Time Warp. Great!

An interesting little alcove off what is effectively the main street. A couple of minutes of distraction, nothing more.

Easy to find on the main road of Hamilton. I don't know much about this. Just saw it when passing by!
