Word Festival 2021

Friday 12 November 2021
Christchurch Town Hall

After being forced to postpone the Christchurch Word Festival, which featured 80+ events and 150 speakers, WORD Christchurch is pleased to announce that the event will go ahead at a later date: 10–13 November 2021 (that’s Show Weekend for Cantabrians).

The WORD team has secured the venues, and is now in the process of checking speakers’ schedules. The new programme will be released soon.

The WORD Christchurch Festival is back for another year, bringing the city alive with books, storytelling and ideas.

With more than 80 events over five days, and over 150 writers and performers, WORD examines the near and the far, with an intensely local flavour and an international outlook that showcases our stories and tackles urgent global issues. WORD has harnessed technology to bring you speakers from afar in new and innovative ways, and has commissioned some exciting musical collaborations.

Spread the WORD!
