Wellington Shakespeare Society Upcoming Events

Wellington Shakespeare Society’s March 2020 Meeting will be in the Thistle Hall Meeting Room. 

Thistle Hall is on the corner of Cuba Street and Caro Drive.

The entrance to the large meeting room is the Caro Drive entrance – it will have WSS on the door – Robert will be there to meet you.

There is quite a lot of parking in the Arthur Street ‘slip road’ off Caro Drive. As Caro Drive runs only from East to West, you have to approach it from that direction. Otherwise, there are parks in Cuba Street and off Caro Drive by the café beside the Jeweller’s shop on the corner opposite Thistle Hall. All only about as far to walk as from St Mary’s courts!

Please give Robert a call if you have any problems or are late arriving, as the door will need to be locked at 7.35pm to avoid other people wandering in.

Enquiries to Robert Gordon (Memberships) M: 021 395 896 or Brian Pearl brian.pearlnz@gmail.com
