The Featherston Sculpture Trust is combining forces with the Featherston Anzac Club Society and the RSA to plan a fabulous birthday celebration for the wonderful Anzac Hall built by the people of Wairarapa in 1916 to provide a venue for entertaining the soldiers at the nearby Military Training Camp.

On Saturday 15 October, join us for a Family Picnic at Clifford Square from 11.30am to 2.30pm, preceded by kids’ storytelling with Adrienne Nunns-Smith in the Featherston Library at 11:00am. Bring a picnic to Clifford Square and enjoy live music, old-fashioned games, Mini Fell train rides, dress-up competition, a sausage sizzle, and more.

For a gold coin donation you will also have the opportunity to explore the Anzac Hall itself, see the priceless photos from the World War 1 era and beyond, and hear about the hall’s fascinating history with guided hall tours by Diana Donald from 12 noon to 2pm.

And a Featherston WW1 Camp Exhibition will be open in the Kiwi Hall and the Heritage Museum (featuring parts of the exhibition formerly held at Aratoi in Masterton).
