Enjoy the following events in the very special atmosphere provided by Old St Paul's.
School's just about out! Old St Paul's has a fantastic educational programme designed to engage primary school-age children (5-12 years of age) in both Wellington's and Old St Paul’s heritage. Journey back into Wellington history particularly that of Thorndon and Old St Paul's by taking part in two of the interactive activities from the programme.
Each activity is only 1.5 hours each and will be facilitated by our staff members in a small group of 10-15 children. Numbers are limited and lunch for the children will be provided.
Having broken both her wrists some months ago, the unstoppable Jan Preston is back at Old St Paul's banging out her trademark boogie woogie, complete with metal inserts.
Jan is returning to the concert platform not only with her new wrists but also new songs and instrumentals. She will be performing with her trio, Mike Pullman on drums and Nigel Masters on bass.
Each year on the last Monday in May the United States of America honours all American service personnel who have died in time of war. The New Zealand American Association and the United States Embassy jointly organise a service to mark Memorial Day at Old St Paul's, which has a historical connection with the US Marines in particular.
All welcome, and after the service you are invited to stay on for refreshments.
As part of this year's Jazz Festival, the Royal New Zealand Air Force Jazz Orchestra presents Swinging Suits, an homage to one of America's great jazz composers, Edward Kennedy 'Duke' Ellington at Old St Paul's.
