What a place to holiday

Nelson and Tasman is a pretty amazing place to live, but an even better place to holiday. So with that in mind and whether you’re a local or visiting from outside the region, Nelson Weekly has put together this holiday edition packed full of things to

do in Nelson and Tasman over the New Year period. This summer holiday period is expected to be a big one, according to local tourism businesses and Nelson Tasman Tourism, and why wouldn’t it? Our beaches are superb, our national

parks are second to none and our restaurants and bars are the perfect place to refuel after a busy day. But the number of top events on is also reason for those spending their summer in Nelson to smile. The Jazz and Blues Festival, Blackcaps v

Sri Lanka internationals, top bands at the Riwaka Hotel, outdoor movies... the list goes on. So enjoy our region this summer. Enjoy the sun, the food and the beaches and on behalf of everyone at Nelson Weekly, have a very happy New Year. - Editor.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Thank you to everyone for their continued support. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a safe and enjoyable holiday period! Milestone Homes Nelson Bays Show Home 8B Champion Road, Richmond P 03 543 8663 E

How much Jazz and Blues can you pack into four days? Quite a bit it appears, thanks to this year’s Nelson Jazz and Blues Festival. For the last 24 years, Nelson has welcomed in summer and the New Year with a celebration of great music, this year being the celebrated festival’s 25th birthday. The Nelson Jazz and Blues Festival sees four days of live music from a stellar line-up of local performers, as well as guests from around the world, and will kick off at 3pm on New Year’s Day with a concert at Fairfield Park in Nelson. The event then moves to several locations around the region, including 1903 Square on Trafalgar St, Morrison Square, River Kitchen Café, The Sprig & Fern on Hardy St, Playhouse Café and Theatre Restaurant, Golden Beer Brewery and Underground. On Sunday, January 3, a special 25th birthday celebration will be held at the Honest Lawyer, before the ever-popular, curtain closing, open-air performance at

Jessie Johnston Reporter Washbourn Gardens in Richmond on January 4. “The formula that’s been used has been a very successful one and that is very much around having a park event to launch it and close it, having the sponsorship and support from many different local businesses so that we can bring in people from out of town, and also [including] local bands. The club at times [includes] up to nine bands and they don’t get a lot of exposure around town, so I think it provides an opportunity for people to hear them as well,” says festival spokesperson, Mike Murphy. The Nelson Jazz and Blues Festival began with the establishment of the Nelson Jazz Club Inc., which in turn was an idea seeded in the backyard of drummer Rupert Winter and American trombonist Al Leonard. Ever

since it was created, the Nelson Jazz Club has incorporated musicians and individuals with a desire to share their passion for jazz music. Evolving from street performances and the Nelson City Council’s desire for a jazz-in-the park-style-event, the first Nelson Jazz Festival debuted in the Botanical Reserve. The festival’s musically rich and varied programme has become recognised as one of New Zealand’s founding jazz festivals, the opening and closing shows at Fairfield and Washbourn each attracting around 3500 people, but none of it would have been possible without the hundreds of musicians who have given voice to their love of jazz, the thousands of people who have enjoyed the performances and the many supporters, businesses, sponsors and trusts who have generously given their money to make the festival viable.

Nelson gets ready for bumper summer

Need it built now?

Kate Russell Nelson’s summer tourism season is shaping up to be a busy one, with many operators around the region tracking ahead compared to this time last year. “We’re definitely in for a busy season,” says Nelson Tasman Tourism chief executive, Lynda Keene. “All the indicators are there that we’ll see some strong growth from the positive season last year, which will come from both New Zealand and new emerging markets.” She says hotel bookings across the region are looking strong, and the B&B sector is also looking solid right up to the end of Easter. Campgrounds around the region are also on track for a busy summer. Tahuna Beach Holiday Park general manager Marcel Fekkes says their bookings are up from last year and they are ready for their annual influx of guests. “Our numbers are looking really good – it’s going to be bumper season.” The holiday park has just installed a giant bouncy

Another local operator, Brendan Alborn, owner of Abel Tasman Aqua Taxi, also says it’s shaping up to be a good summer tourist season for them. “We’ve seen a good increase in people using our water taxi and kayaking services over last year, and last year was a record year for us, too,” he says. “This year, the season seemed to kick-off earlier and there are more people visiting the Abel

Tasman generally.” Lynda says that Nelson’s busiest period, also known as ‘the height of the season,’ runs from December 23 until January 23, when the region sees a big migration of visitors from Canterbury. “Then, in February, we see a big new wave of international visitors until about May,” says Lynda. “The main motivator for people coming to Nelson is the outdoor offerings, to visit friends and family at Christmas time, and, of course, the great weather, and if Nelson turns on good weather, people stay longer.”

Black Caps coming to Saxton The Black Caps are back in Nelson this summer, playing two back-to-back one-day international cricket matches against Sri Lanka. The games will be played on December 31 and January 2 at Saxton Oval, and are the third and fourth matches of the five game ANZ International Series. Nelson Cricket general manager Richard Hayward says he is “delighted” to bring international cricket to Nelson again and is looking forward to two exciting games. “This will be the first time that Saxton Oval has hosted back-to-back international matches, and the timing should be ideal with Nelson at full capacity with thousands of holiday makers from around the country,” he says. To prepare for the crowds, the stand at the Nelson end has been enlarged and the ground capacity is now 7000, increased from the 6000 for the world cup. Richard says the success of the Cricket World Cup matches played in Nelson last February and March played a significant part in being allocated matches this season, along with how the city got behind the tournament. The first match on December 31 kicks off at 11am. There will be two areas allocated with a variety of food vendors and liquid refreshments, and there is ample parking within easy walking distance from the ground. There is also a platform specifically for wheelchairs with access from the Richmond end of the ground, and a large screen will be also be operating to show all the action.

Summer of stand up paddleboarding Stand up paddleboarding is the world’s fastest growing water sport and Nelson is no exception. Five years ago, the sport was almost nonexistent in the region, but with plenty of perfect paddle spots, it was only a matter of time. Toby Wild from Moana NZ Sup remembers the original paddleboarding scene. “Five years ago, you only had one or two paddleboarders and they were weirdos standing on the water, but now you can come here [Tahunanui Beach] and there’ll be 30-40 people on paddleboards out on the water.” “There’s a huge demand for access to the ocean and paddleboarding is a really easy way to get on the water and have some fun.” If you can walk, you can paddleboard. All you need is a board and leash, a paddle, personal flotation device, some water and the right attitude, says Toby. Popular spots include Tahunanui Beach, Monaco, Cable Bay, Delaware Bay, Rabbit Island, Marahau, Golden Bay and the Able Tasman. Shane Anderson from Kitesurf Nelson has been part of Nelson’s paddleboarding scene for ten years and seen the sport’s incredible

growth. “It’s accessible to any age, any gender, any fitness, and there’s something quite special about being on the ocean and being on the water. This time of the year the orcas, seals and dolphins come in, and we get a lot of remarkable stories of people running into the wildlife out there.” • Moana NZ Sup: www., 0508 MOANANZ.

The Riwaka Hotel will be full of nostalgia this weekend, as one of New Zealand’s best-loved bands celebrates an album that shot them to fame 17 years ago. The Feelers will be playing Supersystem, their 1998 debut album in its entirety at the iconic hotel this Sunday night. The five-times platinum album, which has sold over 83,000 copies, is being remastered and reissued, too. The concert is one of three massive shows to come to Riwaka this summer, with Katchafire featuring Sons of Zion and The Black Seeds, and Shapeshifter with Kora and the Sunshine Sound System all due to hit the hotel’s stage within the next week. The Feelers front man James Reid says the band is looking forward to their Nelson show, which will be the last one of their summer tour. They last played here in May as part of a mini South Island tour. “We love to come to Nelson, and Riwaka is one of the best places in New Zealand to play,” he says. “We played our first show of the tour in Hamilton on the 18th and it was very strange playing Supersystem from start to finish, the crowd was amazing and knew the album

word for word.” The band will also be playing a second set, which will include other favourites plus some new tunes. “We take a 10 minute break after the Supersystem show and then come out and blast a full show of the hits – it’s a great way to end the night.” Drummer Hamish Gee says, with it being such a busy time of year, it’s a good way to road test some new material. “We are looking at the new album coming out in 2016, and James has his solo record coming out next year also, so there is plenty on to keep us busy.” Concerts at Riwaka Hotel this summer: Katchafire, Sons of Zion and The Black Seeds are playing on December 31. Tickets available from AAA Ticketing or The Rockshop. Shapeshifter with Kora and Sunshine Sound System are playing on January 2. Tickets available from The Feelers are playing on January 3.

Our wines are world-beaters Enjoying a wide range of world-class wines is just one of the attractions of spending a day touring around Nelson's wine-growing region. Nelson's 30 boutique wineries may not be the biggest in the country, producing just 2.4 per cent of New Zealand's total tonnage of grapes, but there's no doubt that they are among the best. You only need to look the long list of gold medal and trophy-winning wines that are coming out of the region to see that there is exceptional quality across all varieties. Nelson wineries won three of the 18 trophies at last month's Air New Zealand Wine Awards, with Brightwater Vineyards leading the way with its trophywinning Pinot Noir. Blackenbrook's Gerwurtztraminer (Bragato), Seifried's Sweet Agnes (Air New Zealand Trophy), Waimea Estate's Albarino (Air New Zealand Trophy) and Neudorf 's Moutere Chardonnay, which received the first perfect 100 out of 100 from Bob Campbell, are just some of the region's latest award-winning wines. Wine Nelson's marketing manager Meg Matthews says the other feature of Nelson wines is the diversity of varieties and styles, which is quite unique in New Zealand. Meg says the Nelson region may be famous for its exceptional chardonnays and aromatics, but Brightwater Vineyard's Pinot Noir underlines the fact that it also produces superlative wines across many other varieties.

"We have inspired winemakers who are winning awards and are at the top of their game," she says. "We have also won awards across a number of varieties which makes us a unique region for being so diverse." Meg says another highlight of Nelson wine tours is often the opportunity to meet and chat with the winemakers. Nelson's wineries are all family-owned and visitors are "more than likely to be greeted by the winemaker or owner" when they call into the cellar door. "Not many regions boast this authenticity. Our wineries proudly bridge that gap between artisanal and excellence," Meg says.

As well as great wine and hospitality, Meg says wine tourists can also enjoy Nelson's spectacular scenery and the exquisite cuisine offered at some of the wineries. And, if they feel inclined, they can combine pleasure with exercise, opting to travel by bicycle with many of the wineries on or near the Tasman Great Taste Trail cycleway. "We have 24 cellar doors open around the Nelson region and it's a wonderful chance to sample the world-class wines and experience some spectacular views. It is a great way to spend the day."

Rural fire chief: We need your help

Volunteer rural fire fighters around Nelson and Tasman are hoping for a quiet Christmas and New Year, but Waimea Rural Fire Authority principal rural fire officer Ian Reade says that will only happen if holiday makers follow a few simple precautions. The rural fire authority has already taken a number of steps to reduce the fire risk including not issuing any fire permits from December 20 to January 11. But Ian says the wider community also plays a big part in preventing forest and vegetation fires and that’s going to be crucial after the fire danger was officially increased to ‘high’ this week. “We have had some rain, but we

ly careful, especially on windy days, and be aware that things like mowing lawns and grinding and welding can cause sparks and start fires. Even riding quad bikes through long grass and parking them in long grass is risky because quad bikes have very high exhaust temperatures.” However, Ian says one of the biggest dangers at this time of year is people letting off fireworks during New Year’s celebrations. He says fireworks have caused quite a few fires over the years and “they’ve been very expensive for the people who start them”. “Our message is clear - don’t use them. It’s too risky.”

Robbie Campbell will be keeping a close watch for fires from the Richmond Hills fire lookout this summer. have also had wind and hot temperatures and that’s dried everything out,” Ian says. “Everyone needs to be aware of the increased fire danger. People need to be real-

Mayor: Enjoy our region

Ian also advises holiday makers using gas and charcoal barbecues to have a hose nearby “just in case,” and make sure there’s nothing flammable lying around the flames. Wood-fires barbecues in picnic areas around the region can be used, although they will be closed if the fire risk increases. Ian says Nelson and Tasman residents are generally “well educated when it comes to preventing vegetation fires and we appreciate that.” He says the Waimea Rural Fire Authority also appreciated the great work of all their staff and volunteer rural fire fighters, and wished them “a happy, but quiet, Christmas and New Year”.

Top walking tracks throughout N rewarding views, while Rabbit Island has a labyrinth of flat walks suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The Railway Reserve and tracks that follow the Maitai River are also popular, especially for more a sedate walk. They are ideal for parents pushing prams or taking young children on their scooters, Pat says. "We are spoiled in Nelson, but we have to keep up the good work and keep improving the existing tracks and developing new ones. They are doing some good work in the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and it's that kind of vision that will make sure that Nelson remains a haven for walkers."

The Nelson-Tasman region is a hiker's paradise with three national parks, two of the country's nine Great Walks and one of the country's sunniest climates. But Nelson Tramping Club president Pat Holland says there's much more to the region than the Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes parks and Heaphy and Abel Tasman Coastal tracks. One of the region's best kept secrets is the network of day walks within minutes of the city. "It's the accessibility of these walks that makes them so popular," Pat says. "There aren't too many urban areas, even in New Zealand, that have so many amazing walks right on their back doorstep. "The Grampians are great because they are so close and have some wonderful views. The Brook is pretty special too - you only need to walk for an hour and you are amongst big Matai, Totara and Rimu trees - I love it back there." Although Pat enjoys the more challenging walks that involve climbing some reasonably steep hills, he says there are also plenty of more leisurely walks around Nelson and Richmond. The Centre of New Zealand is a classic short walk with a smaller climb and

Pat's favourite walks: Upper Brook Valley: Drive up Brook St to the campground only 5km from Nelson City. Walk across the footbridge and take the main track to the dam and weirs that are part of the historical remains of Nelson City's water supply. More adventurous walkers can continue to Falcon Ridge and the Totara Traverse Track. Involution-Barnicoat: The Involution Track starts at the head of Marsden Val-

ley Rd in Stoke and climbs about 700m through native bush to the ridge on the Barnicoat Range. The climb takes about 1 to 1.5 hours. Return either via Involution, Widdershins Track or along the ridge line to Barnicoat Hill and down four-wheel-drive track. Watch out for mountainbikers. Grampians Kahikatea Track: The track starts in parking area 1km along Market Rd in Bishopdale. It features a large Kahikatea near the boardwalk about half way up and great views of Nelson and the coastline from the main lookout platform near summit. There's an option to return via Mahoe Track or a network of other tracks on the hill that lead to Nelson or the Brook Valley. Grampians from Nelson City: The main track starts at the top end of Collingwood St, or alternatively at the back of Fairfield House on Van Diemen St where there is parking. The track goes up through grand old redwoods before joining the main track which has a steep gradient to the top. Walkers can then take a side track through planted natives to Ronaki Tce and return

to Nelson through a pretty neighbourhood passing Nelson College, Fairfield House, Melrose House and Fairfield Park, or continue up the ridge to the main lookout platform near the summit which is a two hour round trip. Centre of New Zealand: A classic walk for visitors to Nelson with the main track from the Botanics Reserve winding directly up to the summit lookout. The walk takes about 1 hour return although another option is to continue along the Sir Stanley Whitehead Walkway and then drop down into Founders Park for an ice-cream or nice cold beer. Hackett Track: Drive up Aniseed Valley Rd off State Highway 6 south of Richmond for about 10km to the Hackett Picnic Area. The track crosses a footbridg at the picnic area and then a swing-bridge after about 1km, and continues 4km up to the Hackett Hut. The round trip takes about 2 hours. Walkers can also detour to the picturesque Whispering Falls about half way to the Hackett Hut or 5km up the Browning Stream to the Browning Hut. It is also a popular mountainbiking track.

Jared Thorpe and his daughter Ruby, right, and family friend Hannah Shanks have some fun at Rabbit Island just before Christmas. Photo: Simon Bloomberg.

Rabbit Island is a favourite for summer fun Moturoa-Rabbit Island is one of the most diverse recreational areas in the region and that's why it is always a popular destination for holiday makers. The eight kilometre long island, situated just 7km west from Richmond, has much more than a clean, safe and spacious beach. There are picnic areas with free barbecues, mountainbiking tracks, including a section of the Tasman Great Taste Trail that links with the Mapua Ferry, and walking tracks. And it's one of the warmest swimming beaches around with summer water temperatures over 20 degrees Celsius, especially when the tide comes in over superheated sands. The beach is also

popular for surf casting, horse riding and boating, with a designated equestrian area to the the eastern end of the island and a boat ramp located at the back beach next to a water-skiing area. However, one of the biggest attraction is the island's sheer size which means the beach is rarely crowded - even during the peak of the holiday season when over 4000 cars a day have been counted driving to the main beach. It's not surprising that the main beach is so expansive because Moturoa-Rabbit Island and Rough Island are essentially a giant sandbar formed around 7000 years ago at the mouth of the Waimea River. Moturoa-Rabbit Island and Rough Is-

land became a recreational reserve in 1908 and today are mostly covered by commercial pine plantations owned by the Tasman District Council. They are only a 10 minute drive from Richmond, taking State Highway 60 and turning off at Seifried Estate corner onto Redwood Rd and then onto Ken Beck Drive. Moturoa-Rabbit Island is open to the public during daylight hours and has a network of roads around the periphery of the island, providing access to the recreational areas as well as to public amenities including toilets and beachside showers. Dogs are prohibited from Moturoa-Rabbit Island, although are permitted on Rough Island.

Why not play around? We have a course that rewards great shots, with scenery unmatched in NZ. A course where you will always get a friendly wave and a spacious cool clubhouse where you can relax afterwards. We welcome all affiliated and green fee players over the break. If you enjoy your golf you will enjoy one of NZ’s must play courses. Located on the outskirts of Richmond.

Right here in Richmond!

riVEr sWiMMing: sophie Brown and tracey Colligan enjoy the beautiful lee river earlier this month. The nelson tasman region is well known for its beaches, but this summer, if you’d rather not drag sand all through the car, take a trip to some of our magnificent swimming holes around the region's rivers. some of the most popular swimming destinations can be found in the Maitai and roding rivers, not just because of their close proximity to nelson and richmond, but because both rivers also feature plenty of picnic areas and easy access to superb swimming holes. The lee river has a giant swimming hole located at the lee reserve, which features a large rock bank that is perfect for launching oneself into the water at height. Other spots that deserve a mention include the takaka river at Paynes Ford, Motupiko river at Quinneys Bush, Marahau river at Old McDonalds Farm, the anatoki river at One spec rd, lake rotoiti at Kerr Bay and the Buller river at riverview Campground. Many of these places are sure to see a lot of visitors this summer, so if you’re looking for peace and seclusion, you might need to go that bit further along the river where you may uncover a real gem. stay safe around water this summer and remember to check the depth and what’s beneath the surface before you jump in.

Surfs up for local lifeguards Brittany Spencer

They may not wear lycra uniforms or run along the beach to a theme song like David Hasselhoff, but the Nelson Surf Life Saving Club will be out on the water, watching the bay this summer. Club Captain Aaron Lyttle says, although Nelson has some of the safest beaches in the South Island, people still need to be careful. “For us, it’s mainly about beach presence,” says Aaron. “We’re always there to give advice, hand out sunscreen, provide first aid and educate the public about water safety on our beach.” Nelson’s surf life-saving scene is 120 members strong, with

over 30 lifeguards patrolling Tahunanui Beach each year. The club have a strong Nippers and Surf sport programme, and patrol every weekend from December until late March. While Tahunanui Beach is no Piha Rescue, it has it’s own dangers, with lifeguards preforming around 15 rescues each season. “The main dangers at Tahunanui Beach are the big tidal movements and the blind channel off Parkers Cove,” says Aaron. Tahuna’s shallow beach means that tides can turn quickly and, as a group of skinny dippers learned the hard way earlier this month, it’s easy to get caught out by the tides if you’re not paying attention.

Aaron’s advice for anyone heading to the beach this summer, “always keep an eye on your kids, be sun smart, be safe and have fun.” Aaron says the lifeguards are stoked to get the season underway and will take any opportunity to get out on the water, do some training and have some fun. “The club is certainly looking forward to this season, we’ve got some great members, we’re all good friends and we’re just going to enjoy summer.” Junior lifeguard Libby Dowse says she’s looking forward to getting out on the boats and boards this season. “We get to spend a day at the beach with other lifeguards and do heaps of fun activities and sport - what’s not to love?”

Communications: Take two separate waterproof ways of communicating so we can help you if you get into difficulties. 3. Marine Weather: New Zealand’s weather can be highly unpredictable. Check the local marine weather forecast before you go and expect both weather and sea state changes. 4. Avoid Alcohol: Safe boating and alcohol do not mix. Things can change quickly on the water. You need to stay alert and aware. 5. Skipper Responsibility: The skipper is responsible for the safety of everyone on board and for the safe operation of the boat. Stay within the limits of your vessel and your experience. Take a Coastguard Boating Education Course, like Day Skipper, Boatmaster and marine VHF radio training.

Coastguard strongly urges anyone heading out on the water to wear a lifejacket this holiday season. “The Christmas and New Year period is always a busy time for Coastguard volunteers and we can’t stress enough the importance of wearing life jackets,” says chief executive of Coastguard New Zealand Patrick Holmes. “By wearing your life jacket you’re giving yourself the best chance of survival because accidents are by definition unpredictable, and it is extremely difficult to put on a life jacket once you are in the water. “Take them and wear them – they are your best protection when the unexpected happens.” Patrick says skippers also have a big role to play in this because they are responsible for every person on board the boat. “They have an obligation to take responsibility for their passengers' safety.” He says it’s important to remember the five simple safety rules amongst all of the fun. 1.

Tasman Bay Snapper Classic back for 2016 Grab your fishing rods and load up the boat because the Tasman Bay Snapper Classic is back once again for 2016 and is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Unlike other years in which the event was run as a business house and club competition, 2016 will be welcoming anyone and everyone to make a team of four and head out on the water, with all proceeds from the snapper classic going towards Coastguard Nelson. The Tasman Bay Snapper Classic may not be until Saturday, February 20, but organisers are putting the word out early, giving fishermen the chance to get their prime spot sorted for the big day. Fishing starts at 5am and is con-

fined to the Tasman Bay only. Wrapping up at 5pm, everyone is welcome to Speights Ale House where competition entrants will receive a free meal. Everyone is encouraged to donate some of their catch to the fish auction, which will be open to the general public, and if you managed to catch the average weight snapper, you’ll walk away with a prize pack worth $8000, including a DNA boat with a Honda Marine 4 stroke outboard, on a trailer, thanks to sponsors DNA Alloy Boats and Honda Marine. For more information on the competition, or for an entry form, visit the website at

picnic and listen to fine music. This year, venues include Fairfield House, Tahuna Beach Holiday Park and Isel Park in Nelson, plus Washbourn Gardens, Jester House, Takaka’s Wild Earth Nature Park, and the Moutere Hills Community Centre in Tasman.

New blue cod Classifieds Phone: 548 5900 rules catching GIANT SALE out some

Classified deadline - 5pm Friday




Electrical Tutor 24 hours a week to enquire phone Jackie 03 544 7350 or 027 879 8324 bhs


The Ministry for Primary Industries is reminding recreational fishers at the top of the South Island of the new rules for blue cod after a disappointing start to the season. MPI District Compliance Manager Nelson/Marlborough Ian Bright said patrols in the Sounds on Sunday, December 20, found one in four people were breaking the new rules. “We did 31 catch inspections and found eight offences, mainly for undersize blue cod. “Fishery officers patrolling in Golden Bay found quite a few fishers who weren’t aware of the rule change.” The new rules are for the Challenger East area, which covers from the Clarence Rivermouth on the Kaikoura Coast to Farewell Spit, including the Marlborough Sounds. Mr Bright said the main thing fishers, from Clarence to Farewell Spit, need to remember is that they are allowed no more than two blue cod

per person, per day, at a minimum size of 33cm. “Any blue cod under 33cm must be released back into to the sea. This is a very fragile fishery and the rules are in place to promote its rebuilding.” Some people inspected in the Port Underwood area were using undersized blue cod as bait for craypots, which is illegal. Mr Bright said it is a fisher’s obligation to know the rules for the area they are fishing. “It pays to check them before you start catching, and visiting fishers need to be particularly careful as the rules for species vary around the country.” For a full breakdown of the new rules fishers can visit their local MPI office, or get the free NZ Fishing Rules app. MPI encourages people to report any suspicious fishing activity to 0800 4 POACHER (0800 476 224). All calls are confidential.

Beach Beat set to make waves at Tahuna New to the Summer Events programme this year, Beach Beat will showcase talented local acts, performing with the beautiful backdrop of Tahuna Beach. Locals and visitors are encouraged to head along to the beach to enjoy the cool sounds in the warm summer sun, with different acts performing each evening. As a family-friendly event, there will be something for everyone, says Nelson City Council festivals team leader Axel de Maupeou.

“This year we’re bringing Street Beat to the beach,” says Axel. “What better way to showcase our region than with great local performers and bands, set at our beautiful beach; it is summer after all.” In the event of bad weather, the evening will be cancelled.
