A Year At The Pah.

The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre – The Pah Homestead in Hillsborough - is celebrating its first birthday on Sunday, August 14 with a full programme of entertainment for adults and children, including artist talks, poetry and music. Printable Reality will be showcasing some of the highlights from the previous In VOICE + Music series as well as performances by new artists over the course of the day.

Hot Pink comedienne Penny Ashton brings her defiantly life-affirming and hilarious rhymes to the afternoon’s programme, alongside equally humorous and hard-hitting poet-performer Stephanie Johnson, and the close, three-part harmony singing of Macombee & The Dharma Queens.

Heading the morning line-up are singer-songwriter Bernie Griffen (of The Grifters) with fiddle player Dave Khan (The Grifters, The Broadsides) and their brand of swampy country blues, alongside actor-poet Peter Bland.

Other guest performers include moving sculpture-mime artists The White Wall, and poets from the year’s monthly programme In VOICE + Music, held on Saturday afternoons at the gallery. They include: Siobhan Harvey, Kirsten Warner, Sue Reidy, Jeremy Roberts, Alexandra Fraser, Michael Botur, Rosetta Allan and Matt Harvey.

In Voice and Music is organised by Printable Reality, an organisation committed to raising the profile of poetry and spoken word performance in New Zealand.


TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre, 72 Hillsborough Road, Hillsborough, Sunday August 14.

10 – 11.30 AM – music by Bernie Griffen and Dave Khan; poets Peter Bland, Kirsten Warner Sue Reidy, Michael Botur, Rosetta Allan, Alexandra Fraser.

3 - 4.30 PM – music by Macombee and the Dharma Queens; poets Penny Ashton, Stephanie Johnson, Siobhan Harvey, Jeremy Roberts, Matt Harvey.
