TV Celebrities at Upcoming Taupo Home & Garden Show

Organisers of the Taupo Home & Garden Show are pleased to announce that The Block NZ fan favourites, Cat and Jeremy, will be celebrity guests at the show, which opens at the Great Lake Centre on Friday 31st March. The presence of the television celebrities will add another dimension to the event’s strong focus on home improvement.

Director, Josh Shanley, said “We are very excited to have Cat and Jeremy at the show. This is a chance for locals to come and meet them and join in the fun. There will also be industry professionals discussing high-interest topics over the three days, so visitors will have the chance to quiz them about their home improvement projects. We really encourage people to bring along their plans, photos and ideas and to make the most of all the on-site expertise.”

“We have a great line-up of plants and garden equipment, indoor and outdoor furniture, kitchens, new home builders, renovators, spas and much more. One lucky visitor will walk away with the Show Prize, which is a Tempur queen delux mattress and base worth $7,599 from Danske Mobler and Tempur. Plus there is a $250 Resene voucher which can be spent on paint, curtains or wallpaper. All visitors need to do to enter, is provide their details at the show entrance as they arrive. Like us on Facebook @HomeAndGardenShows to find out more”, said Mr. Shanley.

For three days from 31st March – 2nd April, over 150 exhibitors will gather at the Great Lake Centre to showcase the latest innovations and trends in home improvement, along with numerous show-only specials. The event will provide inspiration, variety and expert advice, all under the one roof.

“Show specials to watch out for include $900 off the Dream Spa from Poolpac; discounts off artificial lawn grasses from GrassPro; and over $200 off the UK’s top-selling model of Ezirider electric bike. Other things of interest include Enviromarine’s odour-free Airhead Composting toilet for off-grid homes, motorhomes and boats; a 1960s vintage railway jigger at the Awakeri Rail Adventures site; and the chance to have your next power bill paid by entering a competition at the Ecoefficient Solutions stand.”, Mr. Shanley said.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
