The Thames Country Music Weekend began
its event life in 2015.
It's a concept of Craig Robertson and his working events name '43 holes'.
The home venue is the
Thames Workingmens' Club.
We have a large market in fans who travel
New Zealand in mobile homes who attend,
and with Thames being quite a central spot to get to we have become 'an event to attend' among country fans in New Zealand.
We have attracted sponsors for accommodation, who are all advertised
on our pages on Facebook and posters.
These venues all fill to capacity with travellers to Thames for our event.
We have also begun to attract
visitors from Australia.
The event will also become another great reason to travel to toward the Coromandel.
The future of the event is unlimited, the intention of '43 Holes' events is that it will become a major Country Music event in the North Island, and maybe New Zealand.

Michael Bell will be performing his favourite music on the historic St George's Pipe Organ. Michael Bell (BMus, DipTchg) is presently resident organist, composer and music teacher at Kings School in Remuera, Auckland. His early exploits in music were as an improviser on piano and later on the organ. His first job was playing piano in the lobby of a shopping mall at 246 Queen St. He studied organ/harpsichord with John Wells at the University of Auckland and after completing a BMus and diploma, began teaching Music at Avondale College in 2003. He was Director of Music at St Matthews in the City from 2002 until 2016.
He has a passion for the music of J.S. Bach and improvises on organ and piano with his own blend of Classical and Baroque elements. In 2016 St Matthews in the City performed his setting of Psalm 100. He won best performance of a NZ work at the Kids Sing in June 2017 with The Crocodile, words by Roald Dahl. Bell currently composes for the resident choir at King's School. Michael has continued to compose throughout this time and his Magnificat Antiquitatis was performed in Christchurch this year. (2022)
