If you’ve not been to the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival yet, there’s a checkbox on your ‘Quintessentially Kiwi Experiences’ list that remains glaringly un-ticked. A favourite since its early days in 1990, the gourmet bush tucker festival offers a grand day under the Hoki sun that’s chocka with entertainment (in addition to watching strangers gargling horse semen!), celebrity cooking demos and, of course, an epic helping of both the delicious and seriously, poke-it-with-a-stick-first, out-there grub. And yes, there are literally grubs (of the Huhu variety) on the menu. This year the gloves will come off in the TV cooking show smackdown between MKR judge Ben Bayly and 2015 MasterChef winner Tim Read, who’ll both also be whipping up some gourmet wild fare in the demonstration kitchen. Those in the know will be rocking their fiercest Feral Fashion, trying to take out the annual comp where sartorial choices are often as weird...

UK chart toppers (and probably the world’s most successful-ever covers band) UB40 hit Waipara Hills Winery on 16 January for a long, lazy afternoon and evening of cruisy tunes and a good drop or two. Original UB40 line-up members Ali, Astro and Mickey clocked up the small matter of some 70 million in album sales in the three decades from 1979 to 2008, and are now back together to croon out some of the group’s smooth, easy-going megahits such as Red Red Wine, Cherry Oh Baby, Kingston Town, (I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You, I Got You Babe, and plenty more, supported by local legends Jason Kerrison and Herbs.

Proving definitively that they’re not hiding anything up their sleeves, hunky Aussie magic duo The Naked Magicians have dispensed with wearing shirts altogether – and pants! Billed as the ‘world’s cheekiest magic show’, butt-baring (and everything else, and we mean EVERYTHING) tricksters Christopher Wayne and Mike Tyler combine bodacious slight-of-hand with killer comedy and a large serving of nekkid. Giving new meaning to the magician’s catch cry ‘now you see it,’ these hot and hilarious illusionists take magic to a whole other level with a wave of their wands.  Following sold out shows and rave reviews around the world, the buff boys are bringing their R-rated saucy magical hijinks to Christchurch’s Mashina Lounge next month. This is one disappearing act you definitely don’t wanna miss!The Naked Magicians 13 & 14 August, Mashina Lounge, Christchurch Casino www.chchcasino.co.nz...
