Pregnant circus performer


– An interesting sign has appeared in the Monty’s courtyard: ‘Queens­town’s Craft Beer Bar’. Doubtless this has nothing to do with last month’s opening of a dedicated craft bar in the resort, Camp Street Brewing Company. Or is it perhaps a crafty move by Monty’s owner Barry Ellis? 

– The Gibbston Wine and Food Festival brought on an appropriately-named new associate sponsor last Saturday – local law firm Berry & Co. 

- Former Moscow Circus performer Mila Turnbull’s (left) aerial acrobatics left audiences spell-bound at the upgraded Queenstown Memorial Centre opening variety concert last Saturday. What perhaps few concert-goers realised is that Turnbull is five months pregnant. 

– Longtime local and keen skier Rolf Liechti celebrated his 50th birthday at Coronet Peak last Friday.
