Seating, Security and Updates

Seating and Standing
Performances in The Avon Room and Douglas Lilburn Auditorium at The Christchurch Town Hall are GA and a combination of standing/seating. Seating in The Avon Room is very limited. We advise arriving early if you wish to secure a seat.


Security Information
Please note that bags may be subject to security searches and you should not bring bags larger than 30cm x 30cm x 15cm to our venues. No larger bags (or similar) will be allowed into the venue.


Programme Changes and Updates
Christchurch Arts Festival reluctantly reserves the right to change the schedule, venue or replace sessions. Any unavoidable changes will be advertised here on our Festival website, and through our social media networks.

In the unlikely event of a cancellation, the ticket price will be refunded, excluding transaction/service fees. In this unlikely situation you will be contacted directly by the relevant ticketing agency.
