Enjoy the following events in the very special atmosphere provided by Alberton.
The next lot of curiosities to fill the cabinet in Alberton's ballroom is a sample of dolls dating from the 1880s to the 1950s. Belonging to Auckland collector Karen Staniland, Karen’s lifelong love of dolls began with a pink plastic Kewpie given to her as a toddler. She now has over 300 dolls as well as miniatures and teddy bears.
In celebration of the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand come along for tea at Alberton, the home of supporter Sophia Kerr Taylor where many a lively meeting would have taken place.
