Thames Heritage Festival

  •  Fri 29 Sep 2023 - Sun 01 Oct 2023
  •  Fri 29 Sep 2023 - Sun 01 Oct 2023

This year our Festival theme is "Arts & Crafts ' Lost and Found" - A chance for engagement with crafts and artwork carried out by our ancestors and by the indigenous people of our area.


This is an opportunity for us to engage in the craft work which was carried out "all in a day's work" by our ancestors, and to appreciate the intracacies of the artwork of our local indigenous people. The crafts range from fine needlework to forging heavy metal, and there will be workshops, demonstrations, displays, and talks. This will be an excellent time for you to expose your artistic talents and make your very own "work of art".  The events will be held at our fabulous heritage sites - Thames School of Mines, The Treasury Research Centre & Archive, The Thames Museum Te Whare Taonga o te Kauaeranga, Bella Street Pumphouse, The Goldmine Experience, and Thames Small Gauge Railway.
