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 in May.

Check out escVelocity cafe and gallery, on Fox St. They have a great art exhibition space and also hold workshops and craft nights.

On the event calendar, Jonathan Crayford, Darren Watson, and Eb and Sparrow are all playing in the Kiwi or Anzac Hall in April and May: and the Time Traveller’s Ball returns in June.

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