Legendary Hollywood actor Bill Murray teams up with acclaimed German cellist Jan Vogler to present a spirited evening of music and literature. In this rare live appearance, Murray brings his irresistible charm and wit to the readings of classic American poetry and prose including works by Hemingway, Twain and Thurber, alongside musical selections by Bach, Bernstein, Gershwin, Van Morrison and more.

Social Climbers

Raise a glass to Martinborough's world-class wines with a day of celebrating amongst the vines. Toast Martinborough, NZ's premier food and wine festival, is held across multiple vineyards, with each pouring their own drops matched to food and live music.
