As part of La Fiesta!, you can introduce yourself and your story in te reo. Tutor Lei Graham will guide you in learning to recite your pepeha confidently. Sunday, 10am-12pm, $10 at UCOL.
One of New Zealand's most highly acclaimed young pianists, Jun Bouterey-Ishido, will perform in the Concert Chamber of the Whanganui War Memorial Centre on Sunday at 4pm. The programme includes a wide-ranging journey through musical lands and epochs, including Chopin's Polish dances.
In the Whanganui Regional Museum's Te Puni Taonga/Treasure House you'll find Dressed to Thrill — a contrast of 1870s and 1970s clothing and accessories, from big bustles to trouser suits for women and from heavy dark suits to lightweight pale fitted suits for men. The exhibition asks the question "what is a taonga or treasure?".
