Celebrating Lauris Edmond: A Grass Street Tea Party

  • 22 Grass Street, Roseneath 22 Grass Street Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Join family, friends and fans of Lauris Edmond at 22 Grass Street where a plaque commemorating the time that the much-loved poet lived at that address will be unveiled. Celebrations will include memories and poetry readings from Dame Fiona Kidman, Diana Bridge, and Harry Ricketts, morning tea and remembering the renowned writer who gave Wellington the now iconic lines, “this is the city of action, / the world headquarters of the verb”, that inspired the name of this festival, for which we are forever grateful.
