WORD Christchurch Spring Festival
The WORD Christchurch Spring Festival is a colourful explosion of stories, ideas, poetry and song. This season we are celebrating the wealth of talent in Aotearoa, with 65 events and 100 of our finest writers, thinkers and entertainers.
Check out some of Christchurch’s most interesting venues, with events such as The Great WORD Debate and Adventurous Women at the Piano, plenty of free family and book events at Tūranga, art, poetry and politics at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū, and fringe events in the city’s quirky bars, cafes, and theatre spaces. Buy a book from the festival bookshop and meet the author to have it signed. There’s something for all word lovers at WORD.
