WORD Christchurch Festival 2021 New Date: 10-13 November

WORD Christchurch Festival will now take place from 10-13 November 2021.

Despite having to postpone due to the COVID outbreak and lockdowns, we’re committed to celebrating books, storytelling and ideas in Christchurch, and we’ll announce our revised lineup soon. As much as possible, we will keep events from our original programme intact.

If you already have tickets to WORD Christchurch Festival 2021 events, you’ll have the opportunity to transfer these to rescheduled sessions where possible, or get a refund. Ticketing agencies will be contacting you about this soon.

If you’d like to make a donation to support WORD during these uncertain times, we’d be immensely grateful. You can do so here.

For now, stay warm and safe, read lots, maybe listen to some of our podcasts, and stay tuned for WORD Christchurch Festival v2.0!
