Avebury House, Richmond Community Garden and Avon-Ōtākaro Network host an accessible, welcoming, winter event highlighting the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor. We will mark Matariki and aspects of Maori Tradition with food, music, activities and a week-long lighting display.
This July 19th, Matariki in the Zone is back! There will be live music from the Natural Magic Pirates, Lisa Tui Jonathan Ensemble, and Star Jam. We'll have activities for kids big and small - wood-carving, flax-weaving, marshmallow-toasting and more! The delicious hāngi will be raised at 4.30pm, with huge thanks to Tuahiwi Marae. It will be served alongside a boil-up, vegetable soup, fried bread, hot chocolate and booze-free mulled wine! Coffee Skills Mobile will be there too.
The Light Fantastic Bike Ride is back at 6pm, and this year star-gazing in the nearby red zone with Urban Star Watch Christchurch is on from 6pm, weather permitting! As the sun goes down, the lights will come up! It's going to be a brilliant day out - and you're invited!
The Light Display will be on for the whole week!
