July 6 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Court Theatre is edging closer to returning to the heart of Christchurch’s central city with a brand new state-of-the-art facility.  Creating this new home for one of New Zealand’s iconic theatre companies is both a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and massive responsibility for all involved.  It’s a story about people, place and partnership.
Hear about the plans, design and collaboration that’s unfolding for this exciting project, as well as the surrounding Performing Arts Precinct.  
Taking centre stage in the discussion are members of the wider project team – Matt Cummins (Christchurch City Council), Ross Gumbley and Barbara George (The Court Theatre), and Julian Ramsay (Ruamoko Solutions).
Whether you’re an arts fan or a property fan, get your fix of both at this midwinter “do” that’s certain to warm you up inside and out. Over a mulled wine, catch up with those you know, or network with those you don’t.
Stay on to enjoy the musical Once with a special price on offer for PCNZ members through the Court Theatre Box Office. (Enter the discount/voucher code “PCNZ” during the checkout process. Valid for 6 July performance only).
