Christchurch Heritage Festival

Christchurch Heritage Festival

The Christchurch Heritage Festival is an opportunity to share stories of the past that explore and celebrate our historic journeys through arts, culture and identity. It was on from 24 October to 8 November 2020.

Each year Christchurch City Libraries hosts Photo Hunt to engage the Christchurch community in heritage and gather photographs from across the community, along with the unique stories of their creators. This year marks the 12th Photo Hunt and it was on from Friday 18 September to Sunday 8 November.
