Shed 5

Join Shed 5 for a series of unmissable lunches, designed around conversations with Wellington's culture makers and city shapers.

Tuesday 24th July, Wellington Mayor Justin Lester will be in conversation with Tracy Watkins, the political editor of the Dominion Post. Mayor Justin Lester was elected mayor in 2016, and had a literally shaky start, with the Kaikoura earthquake occurring in his first month in office. This made resilience a top priority for his Council, along with the economy, housing, improving Wellington’s transport, investing in arts and culture and ensuring Wellington becomes the first predator-free city in the world. Prior to entering politics in 2010, he co-founded Kapai, a Wellington food enterprise, and worked in executive management in the private sector. He also served on several boards, including the Wellington SPCA and Wellington Waterfront Ltd.

Time: 12pm - 3pm
Price: $80 per ticket - includes 3 course set menu and cocktail on arrival.
