Toes a-tapping at Tupare

Toes a-tapping at Tupare

31 December 2012

Treats for the eyes, ears and tastebuds are in store for visitors to Tupare on Mangorei Rd, New Plymouth, on Saturday (5 January).

The premier heritage property’s traditional New Year garden fair will feature a wide range of stalls as well as live entertainment by acclaimed country blues group Hard Candy.

“Tupare’s New Year garden fairs are always well attended – it’s a great opportunity for locals to show their holiday guests the stunningly landscaped grounds and unique Chapman-Taylor home,” says the Taranaki Regional Council’s Regional Gardens Manager, Greg Rine.

“We’re excited that Hard Candy is one of the attractions this year. They’re well-regarded musicians following the strong country blues tradition of The Warratahs and the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band. They’ll get toes tapping.”

The fair will run from 10am to 1pm, whatever the weather, and will include:

• Coffee and tasty food options for brunch or lunch
• Local produce – jams, fresh blueberries, honey, nuts, seedlings, plants (ornamental, fruit and vegetable), lavender products, dips, breads
• Arts and crafts – jewellery, clothing and fibre craft, teddy bears, beauty products, books, gardenware.
• Face-painting for the young and young at heart.

Saturday’s fair is part of a year-round programme of workshops and other events at Tupare, Pukeiti and Hollard Gardens, the three heritage properties owned and administered by the Taranaki Regional Council on behalf of the people of the region.

For more information, see www.tupare.info, www.hollardgardens.info and www.pukeiti.org.nz. Social media users can also follow the Regional Gardens on Facebook (TaranakiRegionalGardens) and Twitter (@TaranakiRG).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
