The morning kicks off in nail-biting fashion, with the Silver Ferns facing England in a ‘must win’ match. After their devastating loss to Malawi, our netballers will be hoping they can overcome the English side to proceed through to the semi-finals. The action kicks off at 11am, LIVE on TVNZ 1.

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.
