High tea

This Sunday offers the King’s Birthday-appropriate opportunity to stick out your pinky finger as you tuck into the high tea at Wharekauhau Country Estate.

Music to your ears

Wairarapa is gearing up to welcome a quintet of players from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra to perform ‘Last Leaf in Martinborough on Sunday. The quintet will perform the contemporary classical album that was curated by the Danish String Quartet in full. Organisers say that this musical performance will “transport you to Scandinavia with beautiful renditions of a variety of folk songs, all exquisitely set for a string quintet”.

The 50-minute performance includes short tunes that are variously described as “mysterious, ethereal, and folky”, while being “drenched in a stunning Nordic sound world”. With their appetites then whetted, guests will then enjoy a three-course culinary feast created by The Runholder’s head chef, Tim Smith.

Sunday, 5.30pm – 10pm, at The Runholder, 89 Martins Rd Martinborough; the event is R18, and the $110 per head tickets can be bought by visiting the eventfinder.co.nz website.
