Music in the Gardens 2017


Fantastic summer fun for a great cause On February 18, the extraordinarily popular Music in the Gardens event will again take centre stage at Mansion House Bay, Kawau Island. This event has been running for several years and gets bigger and better each year.

For the 2017 event, there’s a new line up of artists – Nairobi Trio, The Renegades and Chris Sanders will be entertaining the crowds from 2.30 pm onwards. There will also be both silent and live auctions, great food, wines from the Matakana wineries, cider from the Kawau Boating Club and bottled beers. Be ready for spot prizes throughout out the day, and a grand auction prize, plus local crafts for sale.

Once again Camp Bentzon (Kawau Island) Trust, Kawau Volunteer Coastguard and KERT, (Kawau Island Emergency Response Trust) will be the beneficiaries on the day. The event is again sponsored by Rodney Local Board, Department of Conservation and More FM Rodney with generous donations of goods and services for the fundraising auction from numerous retailers and individuals in the Rodney district and elsewhere.
