Submit your event/s. Note that we limit event listings mainly to free or inexpensive public events in Wellesley, such as talks, films, theatre productions, concerts, etc. This is not a place for businesses to promote themselves, their classes, etc. Please don’t submit events that run for weeks and weeks. We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.

Wellesley Historical Society presents Tea with Jeanie Goddard
September 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Please join The Wellesley Historical Society and Wellesley High School English Department legend Jeanie Goddard on Sept. 13, 2pm at a virtual tea event via Zoom. The event, in partnership with Wellesley Theatre Project, will celebrate William Shakespeare’s 456th birthday. Jeanie Goddard, former WHS teacher and forever tea maven, cannot wait to share stories of teaching Shakespeare to the students of Wellesley High School. She will regale you with tales of how Shakespeare became part of her students’ literary, social, and even athletic lives. For example, hear how words from Hamlet’s second soliloquy cheered on the football team to win several Super Bowls.
Wellesley Theatre Project will perform scenes from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and much literary conversation and good cheer will ensue.
Each person must be prepared to stand and deliver at least one line from Shakespeare. Fret not; suggested lines will be made available for those whose Shakespeare books have been relegated to the dustbin of history.
