Here at Collingwood Manor we are having a bit of a spruce up and getting our roof re-painted. Apologies to our guests who have had to endure the scaffolding surrounding the building, but it will all be worth it when our roof is bright & sparkling and good for many more years again!
The Suter gallery, cafe & theatre are now fully re-opened at 208 Bridge Street, and the following three exhibitions are on show until March 12th 2017: MILK & HONEY, PROMISED LAND & EXODUS. It is so great to have our newly refurbished iconic gallery back again. check their website for more details:
The annual Art Expo is on again at Saxton Stadium running from Saturday 22nd-Monday 24th October:
Here's hoping the expo will make it's way back to the Trafalgar Centre in Nelson City next year, now that centre's strengthening work is complete.
On Friday 14th October the Nelson College for girls twilight in the trees gala event is on:
"Come and enjoy the Nelson College for Girls Twilight in the Trees Gala. Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy our students showcasing music and entertainment, food and other stalls, silent auctions, raffles and chocolate wheel".
So...plenty to do in Nelson this month!
