Dine out at one of Featherston's most historic and beguiling premises, Tarureka Estate, usually a venue for weddings and conferences.  Meet the organisers of Featherston Booktown and enjoy a free glass of something local while toe-tapping to live music.  A fish and chip supper will be served in the loft and there will be a cash bar.  The after-dinner speaker is Geoff Robinson ex-anchor of Radio New Zealand National's Morning Report, talking about his life in media.
