Multiple venues

Celebrate 100 years of Katherine Mansfield’s classic story ‘Miss Brill’ with free readings by actor Heather O’Carroll in the Wellington Botanic Garden this spring. 

11am sessions in the Lady Norwood Rose Garden
2pm sessions on the Sound Shell Lawn

“…it was so brilliantly fine—the blue sky powdered with gold and great spots of light like white wine splashed over the Jardins Publiques…”

Miss Brill’s regular Sunday visit to the gardens is the highlight of her week. She delights in watching the crowd, eavesdropping on the conversations of those around her and listening to the music. She feels like the gardens are a stage and she is one of the actors. But this Sunday, something happens that might change Miss Brill forever. 

A collaboration between Katherine Mansfield House & Garden and the Wellington Botanic Garden.
