Cel­e­brat­ing the Man­iototo in style

This Fri­day we will be cel­e­brat­ing 150 years of gold dis­cov­ery in the Man­iototo, our high coun­try her­itage, the spo­ken word and the unique life­style of Ru­ral New Zealand.

Central Otago Mirror - - ARTS -

Step back in time in quaint es­tab­lish­ments around the Man­iototo and en­joy per­for­mances by artists from all around New Zealand and Aus­tralia. Make the most of the win­ter in front of a roar­ing fire, sip­ping a de­li­cious Cen­tral Otago Pinot Noir, lis­ten­ing to tales of days gone by. Works by lo­cal poet ‘Blue Jeans’ (Ross McMillan) will be fea­tured, as will John Grenell, the ‘every­where man’. Bards, Bal­lards and Bull­dust fea­tures min­ers’ breakfasts, 35 per­form­ers, the Speights Back in the Day Con­cert and Dance and all-day en­ter­tain­ment all around the Man­iototo. The best pub crawl ever!
