The World Comes To Hastings For International Cultures Day

The World Comes To Hastings For International Cultures Day

Hastings Cornwall Park will again reflect the diverse culture of Hawke’s Bay during International Cultures Day.

The 2014 edition of this popular event takes place on Saturday 1st March and will feature food and entertainment from all corners of the globe. This year’s special guest performers will be the 50/50 Dance Crew from Auckland.

Cultures Day is organised by the New Zealand China Friendship Society and President Sally Russell says “We are very excited to have 50/50 back with us for 2014. The performers are aged between 16 and 24 and they wowed the crowd at Cornwall Park last year when they performed as the Garage Wallas. Since then they have made the semifinals of New Zealand’s Got Talent and performed at Diwali Festivals in Auckland and Wellington. They have won several regional dance competitions, worked on a dance documentary for Maori TV and a special Diwali Show for TVNZ.”

Sally Russell says “International Cultures Day will again feature a wide range of entertainment from the Pacific communities of Hawke’s Bay, with the Fetu Ao Samoan Wesley Methodist Group, the Tongan Community and the St Andrews Cook islands Cultural group taking the stage during the day.”
“Food will again be a highlight of the event and there will certainly be something to suit all tastes. The offering this year includes Indian spices, Cantonese cuisine, German cakes and Indian chai,” Sally Russell says.

International Cultures Day takes place on Saturday 1st March at Cornwall Park, Hastings with performances starting at 11am and going through until3.30pm.

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>>
