Wellington Heritage Week returns with bumper crop of events

Wellington Heritage Week is returning to the region later this month celebrating its fifth anniversary with a bumper crop of more than 60 events. Starting on Monday, October 25 (Labour Day), the festival will host events including guided tours of Matiu/Somes Island by Eastbourne forest rangers, a guided walk into Khandallah’s Tyers Stream Reserve hosted by the Guardians of Tyers Stream, and a line-up of historically inspired beers served at a quiz night at Waitoa Social Club.

Wellington City councillor Tamatha Paul will help open the festival on October 26 with a panel event alongside Mt Victoria-based urban designer Stuart Niven and representatives from Live Wellington, Generation Zero and the Urban Development Institute.

Events continue through the week, including daily tours of Circa Theatre, a tour celebrating 20 years of The Lord of the Rings at Wētā Workshop and themed tours of Karori Cemetery.
