Nearing its 40th anniversary, the Nelson Market is an integral part of the Nelson community, bringing crowds into the central city on Saturday mornings. The market was launched by Nita Knight in the late 1970s. She was struck by the vibrancy of the region and the range of arts and crafts produced here. Held first in the Miller’s Acres Carpark, it quickly outgrew this space and was moved to Montgomery Square. As the Nelson region has grown, the range of products available has dramatically increased. Alongside the likes of potters, woodworkers and fibre artists, there is now a substantial variety of food stuffs; chocolate and cheesemakers, fresh produce and nuts for example, along with an abundance of locally made clothing, jewellery and many crafts. Takeaway foods with local and international flavours are very popular thanks to the large range of food carts. The Nelson Market has been a business incubator for many brands that have gone on to achieve both national, and in some cases, international success. Pic’s Peanut Butter, Anathoth Jams and Hogarth Chocolates are but a few of these. It would be a rare visitor to Nelson who doesn’t know about the Nelson Market before they arrive. It […]

Welcome to The Suter Art Gallery – where art matters The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū is a memorial to the second Bishop of Nelson, Andrew Burn Suter (1830-1895). Bishop Suter and his wife Amelia travelled to Nelson in 1867 to lead the Anglican diocese and they became major figures in early Nelson society. In addition to his official duties, Bishop Suter also busied himself with artistic pursuits as a recreational painter and collector of art. In 1889 he established the Bishopdale Sketching Club (now the Nelson Suter Art Society) and served as its first President and critic. He was also a friend of the painter John Gully (1819-1888) and developed a substantial collection of that artist’s work. In 1890, the Bishop suffered a stroke which left him incapacitated for the last five years of his life. During this period he discussed his ‘long cherished wish’ to present an art gallery to the people of Nelson. Immediately after the Bishop’s death in 1895, Amelia began to realise her husband’s dream. She gifted some land, money and Bishop Suter’s art collection as the founding donation. Herself unwell, Amelia then returned to England and died barely a year after her […]

Ghost Light Theatre is a not-for-profit 80-seat black box theatre located in Bridge Street Studios, Nelson CBD. Ghost Light’s aim is to light up Nelson/Tasman performers and audiences by providing a space for bold performing arts ventures. Our Mission The ghost light is a singular light left on the stage when the space is empty and dark. It is used for safety – if cast and crew need to find their way around when the theatre is unoccupied. It appeals to the notion that every theatre has a history – it has its own ghosts. The light is meant to keep them at bay while the living are away. But more recently, in the face of extremism and intolerance in our world, the ghost light has come to represent a light in that darkness. A light that values honesty, bravery and acceptance in the form of the performing arts. Here in this space above Bridge Street, Nelson – which used to be a sewing shop, which used to be a dance hall, which is now an artist collective, we want to create a blend of all those notions. We want it to be a safe place. A hallowed place. […]
