Each year the British High Commissioner hosts an International Christmas Fair at his residence, Homewood, to benefit Save the Children. We’ve been several times and it’s a jolly splendid place for a day out, with music, stalls, Devonshire teas, foods from Wellington’s ethnic communities and more. (And they’re always delighted to have steampunks wandering about. Expect photo requests.)
This year it’s on between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 25 November and admission is by gold coin. We don’t bother with meeting times and so forth; just come along in your finery and we’ll find each other.
Homewood, at 50 Homewood Avenue in Karori, is a lovely old house with delightful grounds to explore. The weather is sounding quite propitious at this stage, so we’ll look forward to seeing you there.
