Back to programme


There are guided tours, and then there are guided tours. WORD Christchurch has borrowed the keys to the Canterbury Museum, and once the general public has gone home, we’re letting the poets in. Take an after-dark stroll through the halls and galleries of the museum, with an all-star line-up of poets waiting beside favourite taonga to read work that illuminates these treasures in brilliant and surprising ways. Afterwards, regain your senses with a drink from the cash bar among the taxidermied menagerie of the Bird Hall. Poets include Frances Samuel, Robert Sullivan, Rebecca Hawkes, Erik Kennedy and Joanna Preston.

With support from Canterbury Museum
