To mark the 100th anniversary of the Featherston Military Training Camp and to fundraise for the Featherston military camp sculpture, at noon 24 January the historic Anzac Hall will come to life with music, food, wine, artists and horses.

Secretary of the Featherston Camp Memorial Trust Jean McDowall is pleased to announce that the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Charitable Trust will be travelling from the South Island to form a Guard of Honour at the fundraising charity luncheon.

The Chief of Army, Major General Peter Kelly is attending along with the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Hon Maggie Barry. Other guests include a representative from the Turkish Embassy, Mr Aziz Sevi, and sculptors and artists Paul and Fran Dibble.

The event will be unique as it will have a regimental mess theme. The meal will consist of three courses plus cheeseboard matched with Gladstone wines.

We are delighted that food will be by Chef Ant North, formerly of Wharekauhau and Wakelin House, and Masterton’s Thomas Nikora will feature on piano.

Tim Shoebridge, author and historian, is guest speaker at the event.

The sculpture will mark the national significance of training camp, which played an integral part in the history of Featherston and its surrounding areas. The total cost of the sculpture is about $650,000.
