Festive lights shine on Greytown

We’ve finally hit the halfway point of the year and – although many may be lying low and rugging up in front of the fire on these cold winter days and nights – the region’s weekend events schedule just keeps on keeping on.

Start the first day of the month off with a bang at The WBS Big Switch event in Greytown, which starts at 4pm.

Enjoy all the beautiful things the town is putting on as part of its annual Festival of Christmas, from live entertainment night markets to fireworks and snow machines.

Then, as the clock strikes 5:30 pm, breathtaking lighting and projections will be switched on for the first time, and mapped-out lights will illuminate the town’s buildings.

    Today, 4pm–8:30 pm, Greytown Hall, 89 Main St, Greytown.

Book Fair

All the region’s bookworms are urged to head down to Martinborough, where First Church will be holding the much-loved book fair that has been running for several years.

With approximately 5000 items for sale, there is sure to be something for everyone, including fiction and non-fiction books, CDs, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles, and lots more.

    Today, 10–4 pm and tomorrow, 10–3 pm, Martinborough Town Hall, Waihinga Centre. Texas St, Martinborough.

Wonderland Glow Show

There’s the chance to feast your eyes on spectacular glow-in-the-dark giant puppets at the popular Wonderland Glow Show this weekend, with two morning performances to choose from.

The show will take you through a ‘Kiwified’ version of ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

Let your imagination take the wheel and explore the wonderful world of dancing flamingos, an eight-metre caterpillar, and giant flowers.

    Tickets are $23.50 each, which can be booked via the Carterton Events Centre website.

    Tomorrow, 10am or 11:30am, Carterton Events Centre, Carterton.

Beethoven’s favourite

With Donald Armstrong on violin, Alex Hambleton on the French horn, and Jian Liu on piano, classical music lovers are in for a genuine treat tomorrow.

The trio will perform Beethoven’s Sonata for Horn and Piano, Clara Schumann’s Romance for Violin and Piano, Brahms’s Trio in E flat major, and a new commission by Anthony Ritchie’s New Commission for violin, horn and piano.

    To prevent disappointment, book your spot via phone at 06 3049497 or email at [email protected]

    Concert tickets are $30 for adults, while children get in for $10.

    Tomorrow, 4pm, 57 Wood St, Greytown.
