Join an eclectic group of writers and Wellington personalities to fondly and raucously “roast” Tom Scott, the celebrated cartoonist, columnist, playwright, screenwriter and life member of the Press Gallery. 

Enjoy boutique pub grub and listen to tales tall and true, including those drawn from Scott’s new book, Drawn Out: A Seriously Funny Memoir, which relates his tragi-comic childhood, manic student-newspaper days, years spent pen-pricking the powerful and collaborations with John Clarke, Murray Ball and Ed Hillary. 

Then linger at the New Zealand Festival Club for the Writers & Readers closing party from 8pm onwards.


New Zealand Festival Club 

See a show, stay for the party. This electric pop-up on Wellington’s waterfront is the place to be and be seen for three fun-filled Festival weeks. And when the curtain falls each night, Wellington’s newest hot spot throws open its doors with free entry for everyone. Because the show ain’t over until the Festival Club closes.
