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.

One the event’s calendar, winter 2017 saw the inaugural Time Traveller’s Ball in June, and the First Friday’s team presented The New Zealand Guitar Quartet in July, and Delaney Davidson in November at Kiwi Hall.

Watch out for a performance of Chinese Opera at the Anzac Hall in February- this is in full costume and makeup, featuring international performers. And it’s free! More detail soon.

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