Bumper Winter Events Guide Out Now

Published: Tue 4 Jun 2024 11:58 AM
If you want to know what’s on in Marlborough this winter, look no further than the Winter Events Guide.
Regional Events Advisor Samantha Young said the guide was now available, showcasing Marlborough events from 1 June to 31 August. “This is the biggest Winter Events Guide ever, which is heartening considering the tough time many of our events have had these past few years,” Mrs Young said.
“Our events sector has shown a lot of determination and creativity in the face of challenges,” she said. “You only need look to the inaugural Pride Wairau Festival this June as a great example of a new event and Marlborough’s celebration of Matariki also continues to grow with an array of events and a programme due out soon as well.”
“We also have long-standing favourites like the Marlborough Book Festival bringing top contemporary authors to Blenheim. One of Council’s community events - the Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival – will have live performances at venues around the region. Our bumper guide shows it’s a great time to support these fantastic events on offer.”
Printed copies of the guide are available now from Council offices, libraries, isites and the ASB Theatre. An online version is also available, promoted via social media and Stuff.
