Dame Malvina Major is coming home for next year's Waikato Times Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival.

The world-renowned soprano will perform on the Rhododendron Lawn at the gardens on February 25 in one of the two major acts announced today to coincide with the start of ticket sales next week.

The other major drawcard is former Little River Band lead singer Glenn Shorrock, who is teaming up with pop and soul singer Mark Williams and OpShop's Jason Kerrison. The trio will be on stage on February 24.

Tickets for the festival – which features more than 70 other performances and is one of Hamilton's must-attend events – are on sale at Ticketek from Monday.

Tickets to see Dame Malvina are $45 and for Shorrock, Williams and Kerrison it's just $30 if purchased before the end of December.

– The Waikato Times Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival runs from February 17 to March 1. For more information, hamiltongardensartsfestival.co.nz.

Too elitist

Ticket prices were too high

A gala ball is an outdated celebration

I thought it was a great idea

I don't care about the city's 150th celebrations

I didn't know about it
