EVENT POSTPONED – The Teece Museum is now closed to the public until it is safe to reopen, and therefore this event is likely to be postponed. We will try to identify a new date as soon as we can, and will update the event listing accordingly.


‘Coffee and Classics’ is regular morning tea for members of PhiloLogie (our friends’ society) and Classoc. Each session will include a behind-the-scenes peek in the museum, examining an object or two from the collection, and the chance to enjoy a spot of coffee and cake together.

April: Associate Professor Alison Griffith from the UC Department of Classics will discuss the Roman marble ‘Head of Hadrian’ currently on loan to the Teece from the Collection of Doug and Anemarie Gold.

This is an invitation only event for PhiloLogie and Classoc members. To attend, please RSVP to Terri ElderFind out more about how to join PhiloLogie.

When: 10.30am Tuesday 21 April
Where: Teece Museum, 3 Hereford St, Christchurch
