Variety to the fore this weekend


For sports fans looking to continue riding the World Cup high, a switch from soccer to netball could be the right move for you.

Today, head on down to the Trust House Wairarapa Netball complex to see a day of top-level netball and make some noise. Finals day kicks off – or should I say passes off – from 10am. The Premier One game between Celtic United and Wairarapa College will be starting at 1pm and it’s not a match to miss.

Today at Trust House Wairarapa Netball Complex, 10 Colombo Road, Masterton. Starting at 10am.

A taste for tennis

If you wanted to try your hand at tennis, the Masterton Tennis Centre is the place to be this weekend. Organised doubles will be held from 12.30pm today and social doubles from 10am tomorrow. Everyone welcome.

Masterton Tennis Centre,
147 Dixon St, Masterton.

Conservation conscious

Conservation Week 2023 finishes tomorrow and what better way to get your tamariki involved than to visit Aratoi Museum and Art Gallery. Wellington-based artist Jenny Keate’s exhibition ‘Looking Sideways’ is on display and draws inspiration from our own backyard and the Mauri oho native restoration work along the Ruamāhanga.

Today and tomorrow, 10am-4pm, Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History, 12 Bruce St, Masterton.

An international affair

This week is Aotearoa Spanish Language Week. Pop down to Regent 3 cinemas tomorrow to catch RADICAL – a Sundance Film Festival submission from Mexico. It stars Eugenio Derbez from CODA, the critically acclaimed film that premiered at the 2021 festival. This will be the only screening at the New Zealand International Film Festival and starts at 3pm sharp with refreshments, a raffle and more starting at 2.15pm as a fundraiser for the New Zealand Pacific Studio.

Tomorrow at 3pm, Regent 3 Cinemas, Masterton.

Books for a look

There’s nothing better than a good book. If you’ve demolished your way through the local libraries or the shelf at home, then visit the Carterton Events Centre on Holloway Street to see what you can find?

The Monster Book Fair, today from 10am-4pm and Sunday from 10am-3pm. Free entry.

Garden Fiesta fun

If you’ve got a green thumb and a passion for plants and local produce then you may find yourself heading to Carterton today. The Wairarapa Garden Fiesta is on at the Clareville Showgrounds and is entry by gold coin donation. Their event page boasts that they’ll have plants, plants, plants and more plants.

Garden Fiesta, Clareville, 8.30am-3pm.
