creative & cultural Featherston

Pick up a book to read on the train, from one of our secondhand book stores. We’re also New Zealand’s Booktown, with many secondhand sellers and an annual literary festival: this year it’s May 14-16. Winter 2017 will see the inaugural Time Traveller’s Ball in June, and the First Friday’s team present The New Zealand Guitar Quartet in July.

Featherston is also home to many artists, jewellers, crafters, writers, and makers.
