School holiday fun at Highwic

Bored youngsters will be able to enjoy doing something a little different these school holidays at Highwic, the Heritage New Zealand property in Newmarket.

School-aged children will be able to play games their great-great-great grandparents are likely to have enjoyed, including indoor favourites like Blind Man’s Bluff, musical cushions, blow out the candle and more.

“We’ll also be firing up our coal range and doing some home baking the old way, as well as providing a variety of fun craft activities,” says the Manager of Highwic, Cheryl Laurie.

“Depending on the weather, children will also be able to play some of our Victorian-era games outside including croquet, quoits and stilts.”

School Holiday Fun at Highwic takes place between 10.30am and 4.30pm on July 10 and July 17. Adults $10, children free (maximum four children per adult). Children must be accompanied by an adult. Bookings essential. To book – or for more information – contact Highwic on Ph 09-524-5729 or email highwiceducation@historic.org.nz

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
