- Christchurch Town Hall
- Saturday 3 September 2022
Mayor, Lianne Dalziel and Venues Ōtautahi invite you to join us for the inaugural Christchurch Town Hall Gala Ball with the first year of this annual event marking 50 years since our city’s iconic city venue was first opened to the public in September 1972.
The Christchurch Town Hall is so deserved of a marked celebration as is not just an icon of our city, not just a place in our hearts but a building that says so much about what we have achieved as a community.
The evening will be full of shared memories and experiences collected over the years and, through the music of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra and The Eastern and Friends performing songs from 50 years of the acoustic genius of this venue, will be a true celebration of one of Ōtautahi, Christchurch’s most loved places.
Venues Ōtautahi Executive Chef Dan Shanks and the culinary team will be serving an extensive range of canapes, bowls, desserts, and beverages to be enjoyed throughout the evening showcasing the wonderful produce and suppliers of our Waitaha, Canterbury region.
This is a black-tie event so a chance to get dressed up and enjoy a night backed by the music of some of the greats from 50 years of performing arts at the Town Hall, Tom Petty, U2, Norah Jones, REM, Santana, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, Crowded House and Shapeshifter just to name a few.
