What's on

Now on: Live 'n Loud

Live ‘n Loud takes a look back at Timaru’s rock music scene in the 1980s and 90s, when bands played most weekends at local pubs and night clubs such as the Old Mill or Staffords.

Overseas music trends and fashions were reflected in what many local bands were doing, with some recording original music or endeavouring to make a living playing their music.

The exhibition will be a nostalgia trip for some and an insight into our recent social history for others.

This exhibition has now been extended until 19 July 2020!
