Visit Christchurch

If you're visiting from out of town or even if you're local and want time to recover then we encourage you to maybe include Refresh as part of a mini break or holiday.

Take a day off either before or after - or even both - and see what is on offer in Christchurch and the surrounding area.

Friday is a public holiday for us Cantabrians - all part of Cup and Show Week. There are many events going on during the week.
