Scarfie Flats

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 11 May, 1:00pm – 2:00pm


Hanover Hall, 65 Hanover St, Dunedin, Dunedin


All Ages

“Like the ancient art of couch burning (but far safer), flat-naming is a very important and unique part of the overall rite of passage of Otago University students.” So say the authors of Scarfie Flats of Dunedin.

Sarah Gallagher was so intrigued by this vibrant aspect of Dunedin’s social history that she spent 18 years researching it before co-writing a lavishly illustrated book on the subject with Ian Chapman.

The two will share stories about the flats, the tenants and the colourful goings-on. Chaired by upstanding former Castle St resident (and author of one of the book’s chapters) Aaron Hawkins.

Please note that space is limited so admission cannot be guaranteed.
