The late Sally Rodwell
– her life and work will be celebrated this Sunday, 22nd October at The Studio, 146 Riddiford St, Newtown, Wellington (formerly The Space).

The following message is from Magdalena Aotearoa:

Dear friends,

It was with great sadness that we learned on Sunday that our dear friend and co-founder of Magdalena Aotearoa, Sally Rodwell, had died.

She had struggled since the death of her husband and theatre partner Alan Brunton in 2002, and now she is at peace and with Alan. Sally’s funeral took place at Erskine Chapel in Island Bay on Thursday afternoon. Sally was instrumental in saving Erskine College from demolition and the chapel is a beautiful and appropriate place for her farewell.

A celebration of Sally’s incredible life will be held this Sunday, 22nd October, from 2pm onwards, and  there will be the opportunity for those who wish to, to speak, sing, perform, etc. The venue is The Studio, 146 Riddiford St., Newtown, Wellington. Please bring a plate / BYO.

with love,
the Magdalena Aotearoa Trustees
