Central Leader - - NEWS -

Al­ber­ton is cel­e­brat­ing its 150th an­niver­sary with two themed din­ners.

Con­struc­tion on the orig­i­nal Mt Al­bert farm­house started in 1863 and it was de­vel­oped into an In­dia-in­spired man­sion in the 1870s. It was the home of the Kerr Tay­lor fam­ily.

The event themes are Raj Din­ner and Mother­land Re­vis­ited which re­flect the fam­ily’s links to In­dia and the United King­dom.

The Raj Din­ner is be­ing held on July 26 and the Mother­land Re­vis­ited event is on July 27. En­try to each is $70 per per­son and in­cludes a four-course meal and re­fresh­ments. Each din­ner is limited to 50 peo­ple. Email al­ber­ton@his­toric.org.nz or call 846 7367.
