Wellington Classical Association

The Wellington Classical Association was formed in the late 1940s.

Members of the Association include current and former academic staff, students, teachers, and others—anyone with an interest in the ancient world is welcome to join.

The Association hosts monthly meetings at Victoria University of Wellington, which include talks from local and visiting academics. Other events include an annual play, a postgraduate symposium, a visit to the University's Classics museum, and an annual pub quiz.
