Exhibition of acknowledgements

Aratoi’s exhibition “In Recognition” is based around a collection of objects that showcase the many ways in which people are extraordinary, including their achievements and their community contributions.

“In recognition of an event, for a service, or of a visit, one party will give a physical item to another to mark the occasion. The Aratoi Collection holds a number of these items, each with a story of their own. Here, we share them with you.”

    Today through Sunday, from 10am to 4pm, at Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History, 12 Bruce St, Masterton [exhibition runs until July 28].

Promising a good time

Local stars from the hit bands of the 1960s and ‘70s have continued to regularly perform crowd-stopping high-energy shows.

A live band collaboration will be playing at the Carterton Events Centre tomorrow, including Hogsnort Rupert, Bulldogs Allstar Goodtime Band, and Dave and the Dynamos. The founding members – Dave Luther, Kevin Findlater,and Neil Worboys – have united with some Wellington musicians to create the Hogsnort Bulldogs Goodtime Band.

During their two-hour show, which was sold out in 2023, the band will again perform all their great chart-topping hits from the era, including ‘Pretty Girl’, ‘Miss September’, ‘Aunty Alice Bought Us This’, ‘Everyone Knows’ and ‘Life Begins at Forty’.

The band has recently filmed a number of videos featuring songs they’ll be performing, which can be viewed on the band’s website: www.hogsnortbulldogs.co.nz. Andrew and Kirsten London, who are celebrated Kāpiti musicians and entertainers and will be the supporting act, have released several very successful albums of original material that humorously focus on the unpredictable nature of daily life.

    Tomorrow from 7:30pm at the Carterton Events Centre, Holloway St, Carterton. Adults $39 each. Buy tickets online via cartertonec.co.nz or call 06 379 4081.
