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. We are delighted to also host Delaney Davidson in November at Kiwi Hall.

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