Due to circumstances many of our events have been cancelled. We are committed to working with the promoters to reschedule for the future when the situation allows.

Thank you for your understanding.


Central Hawke's Bay Lions Club is sorry to inform you that the  Bookarama will not be going ahead in April - We are looking to reschedule for later in the year.


Arts On Tour New Zealand thank you for all the positive messages of hope and encouragement, understanding the strength that is in music and people.

 Thank you for all the considerations and responses.  We all tried as hard as possible to get this to fly but have to conclude that we are cancelling. 

Waipawa M&D's upcoming production of "Cinderella", being written by Sir Roger Hall especially for Central Hawke's Bay, will be postponed. 

Show dates due for September will be rescheduled


Hopetoun Brown light up the night, their antique wind instruments shrieking wildly, evoking the spirit of New Orleans funeral processions or futuristic funk jams.
This is Supergroove’s horn section. Expect electric pianos, vibraphones and a van load of horns playing deep down bass lines and jumping sax licks like you’ve never heard! These New Zealand Music Hall of Fame inductees adore rare and antique acoustic instruments such the vibraphone and the bass clarinet, while embracing the bombastic power of the tuba, the tenor saxophone, trombones and multiple trumpets. They’ve teamed up with Finn Scholes, arguably one of the finest improvisers currently playing trumpet in New Zealand to form a unique and musically diverse act that can be at once tender and soulful while at times, anarchic and heavy.
