The Shetland Society of Wellington is a group of people with a connection to, or interest in, the Shetland Islands.



About the society

We get together regularly to celebrate the New Zealand-Shetland connection, provide information about Shetland to our members, and participate in community events to promote and celebrate Shetland’s culture, music and heritage.

Check out our Events page to see what functions are coming up. Every year we hold a Picnic, Viking Ball, Local Outing, Mid-winter Foy, Anniversary Dinner, and Children’s Christmas Party/Members’ Afternoon Tea. 


We extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us. Members get together regularly, receive a quarterly newsletter, and can borrow books relating to Shetland from our new library collection. You can apply for membership or email us for more information at
