Art Deco Festival

Divine Deco Events

Sunday Morning Jazz Service, 10 – 11AM

Swing & A Prayer, 4 – 5 PM

Going to church was an essential part of people’s social and spiritual life in the 1930’s. 

Swing into church this Art Deco Festival wearing your Sunday best (and a smart hat!) for a service featuring a jazz Mass setting by local Hawke’s Bay composer Bill Bennett.

Then pop back in the afternoon, while still wearing your Sunday best, to join in a less formal event.  ‘A Swing and a Prayer’ remembers the events of 1931 with jazz styled music, gospel spirituals and memories. 

All ages/ $ FREE although an offering or koha would be appreciated
