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. Sadly 2020’s festival is cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but Booktown has other events in the works, so keep an eye on their page.

Check out The Miracle Room gallery, down the red alley off Fitzherbert St. They have a great small art exhibition space with a new exhibition monthly, and also host intimate musical events.

On the event calendar, Delaney Davidson, Darren Watson, and Eb and Sparrow have all recently played Kiwi or Anzac Hall:  Keep up with upcoming events in Featherston here

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