This year’s Tremains Art Deco Festival is shaping up to be a star studded one as Kiwi Stars Kerre Woodham, Shane & Nerida Cortese and Masterchef Brett McGregor all head to Napier to enjoy the festivities.
 
Actor, Singer and Performer Shane Cortese, and his New Zealand dance star wife Nerida, will return to the Art Deco Festival for their third consecutive year. Shane Cortese says “The Art Deco Festival is hands down our favourite event in New Zealand. We love the music, the clothes, the amazing party vibe and super friendly people and are thrilled to be able to return for another great weekend”.
 
Newstalk ZB Radio Show Host and New Zealand media personality Kerre Woodham is making her first trip to Art Deco Festival and is excited. “I’ve got all my outfits sorted and really can’t wait to come down to Napier and get amongst the music, fashion and fanfare. Art Deco Festival has been on my bucket list for a long time” said Woodham.
 
Kerre and her radio co-host Mark Dye will broadcast their radio show live from Napier on Thursday 16th Feb (on –air 1pm-4pm). The pair will focus on Art Deco for the duration of their show and will interview a host of people including Moses Mackay, the male lead in the Festival of Opera’s Carmen, Shane Cortese and Shane Gorst, General Manager, Art Deco Trust who will share the Deco story with Newstalk ZB listeners.
