Plenty to orbit around

Aratoi has been planning a lunar extravaganza, and today is the first day showing Our Moon: Then, Now and Beyond. “A constant source of fascination for thousands of years all across the world,” the new exhibition involves a five-metre scale model of the Moon and launches an investigation of its mythological, scientific and cultural importance. Whanau activities and public programmes also accompany the exhibition.

    Today until 16 July.

Pizza and reggae

We’re halfway through NZ music month, and if you’re keen to support a local band and maybe even have a bit of a boogie, Carterton has you sorted. A night of live music is promised from Chapelli’s Pizzeria and Bar, a restaurant new to the scene. On the tunes for tonight are CC’s House, Wairarapa-based funk, soul and reggae fusion group, which sounds like a recipe for a good time.

    Tonight, 8.30pm-11.30pm, Chapelli’s Pizzeria and Bar, tickets $15pp

Book Club 2

St Matthew’s Collegiate School for Girls is hosting a movie fundraiser, showing none other than the ‘slightly scandalous, totally fabulous’ Book Club 2 starring Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen. The highly anticipated sequel takes the four best friends and their book club to Italy for adventure, drama and laughter – all the emotions a comedy should deliver.

    Tomorrow, 5.30pm, The Screening room, Masterton.

Ladies Day

Also on the list for entertainment, head on down to Studio 73 in Greytown for the warm-hearted, feel-good comedy, Ladies Day. This amateur production by Amanda Whittington features spilt secrets and champagne as friendships are tested to their limits. This production was created through Greytown Little Theatre, a community theatre space catering to the arts in South Wairarapa. If you can’t make it this weekend, it’s also showing for the rest of the week.

    Today 8pm-10pm and tomorrow 2pm-4pm, tickets at eventfinda.co.nz
