What’s on?


The Wellington Community programme

As the Wellington Community team, our aim is to provide a meaningful programme of cultural, social, business, careers and educational events and activities for everyone in the Community. We aim to create a programme that helps us come together to reinforce, support and build the special and unique relationship that we all have with Wellington College and with one another.

Our events programme may look a bit empty at the moment, we are busy working on getting as many of our events online for you all to enjoy. Please keep checking this page as we will have updates coming very soon.

Wellington Community Book Club

7:30-8:45pm

Come and join this fun and informal virtual group to discuss the chosen book with our wonderful head librarian, Lucy Atherton, and fellow members of the Wellington Community. Remember your glass of wine and nibbles!

At that first meeting after the summer break we will be discussing:

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.  A huge book which I’m finding fascinating. I’m listening to the audiobook (25 hours to go – it started at around 43 hours I think!) and

Where the crawdads sing by Delia Owens. This seems to have been a hugely popular book this summer but don’t worry if you haven’t read this one as well, the main focus will be Shantaram.
