The Christchurch Arts Festival
Get ready Christchurch: the always hotly anticipated Christchurch Arts Festival is back on its biennial schedule in 2017 (until September 17) to heat up spring with an explosion of national and international talent in dance, music, the spoken word, visual art, theatre and comedy. From the shocking to Shakespeare and crooners to clowns, you’re guaranteed to find something – or many somethings! – on the schedule to love. Better get organised, though; tickets are in hot demand as usual and if you miss the good stuff, it’s another long two-year wait. Hit the festival website before it’s too late and alleviate that FOMO!
