Dear Dee, I thought I would drop you a line and give you idea of what I have been planning for Going

West this year; it was a few short months ago when you were at the Going West Trust meeting where we talked about all this. This is a year of centuries – 100 years since the birth of Allen Curnow and of John Mulgan. As

a reference I have taken Curnow’s poem Landfall in Unknown Seas as the title of the festival. If you look closely at the paper boats on the flyer you will see the text of this poem. Friday September 2 at the Hardware Tool Room, (booked by Annie Franklin) is our opening,

A Night with David Eggleton. Well not really a night but more an hour or so. David is well remembered as a dynamic performance poet and will be great in the Tool Room. We have to work out how to get you down the stairs but it can done. He is also here as editor of Landfall, and as an award winning book reviewer Saturday morning, September 3, is the Book Market at the War Memorial Hall in the village. As

you will remember from last year a number of book dealers buy and sell there, and Francis from Bethunes will value books on the spot. What we encourage people to do if they wish to move books on is hire a table at the event and do some of their own trading with the professionals alongside. There will be book binders and hand-printers and much bookish ephemera there plus things to eat - and live music. Your challenge will be to leave with less than you came with! That evening is the Poetry Slam. This is competitive verse with a cash prize for winners and

we have asked David to be one of the judges at this. This will be, judging by past events, a noisy but good-humoured evening. Food and drink on tap. Meanwhile around the traps we have a range of events. On August, 25-27, the Playhouse in

Glen Eden will be staging our theatre session with Raising the Titanics – ‘a musical homage to the late and great Maori show bands’ by Albert Belz. At Corban Estate Arts Centre Metonymy 2011 will be show-casing the best of their work. Keep an eye out for The Gruffalo, August 20 and 22 at the Playhouse

– charming fun for the children. Also at Corbans are the music/ performance workshops for teens and, at the end of September, at Kelston Community Centre, Storyfest a free day for families. Landfall in Unknown Seas unfolds the following week and I will tell

Painters make it 19

In 1980 several local artists realised the need for an organising group to encourage artists to exhibit their work. Now 31 years on and holding the 19th Annual Exhibition in the Titirangi War Memorial Hall, Titirangi Painters celebrates the success of all those years. Over 40 artists will exhibit their work in a diverse show of art. Well known

Waitakere artists Edith Diggle, Suzaine Greenshields. Noel Hutchinson, Sharon Mann, Monique Endt and Lynette McKinstrie alongside more recent members Steve Smith, Lynn Simpson and Nora Grieve are among the exhibitors. Paintings range from abstract to contemporary and realistic in all mediums

– pastels, watercolours, acrylics and oils – and all exhibiting artists will be available to discuss their paintings with the public. Painting demonstrations by Bruce Loretz (oils), Helen Steven (watercolours), Ken Padgett (pastels), and Monique Endt (acrylics) will run during the exhibition. The Exhibition is open from 10am to 4.30pm daily on August 20 and 21 and admission is free.
