Kidsfest 2019 – coming soon…

Free Movie tickets & Free Peppa Pig show!!

There will be two sessions of the interactive Peppa Pig show on Sunday 21 July – one at 11am and one at 1pm, with pre-show entertainment, including food trucks, face-painting, art workshops and more, on offer in Victoria Square from 10am. The tickets will be available online from the KidsFest website from 9am on Tuesday 4 June.

This year KidsFest includes more than 260 events across Christchurch, Waimakariri and Selwyn. The KidsFest fun will begin on Saturday 6 July with KidsFest at the Movies – a free day of movies at the Hoyts EntX cinema complex in Christchurch’s city centre. The whole complex has been hired out for the day and three of the latest children’s movies – Toy Story 4, Secret Life of Pets 2, and Detective Pikachu – will be shown over three sessions.

Our very own Amplify School of Music is running ‘have a go’ instrument lessons too!

Other not-to-be-missed KidsFest events include:
The Big Chill where kids will be able to skate, scoot, rollerblade, bounce, jump on a crazy bike, shoot some hoops, play ball, get their face painted, and enjoy a free Hellers sausage sizzle with family and friends in the heart of Linwood. The Christchurch Brick Show at Horncastle Arena where kids can have a go with robotics, mechanics, Lego energy generators and more.

The KidsFest Pool Parties, which are being held at Pioneer, Taiora QEII, Jellie Park and Graham Condon pools and provide kids with a chance to have fun on inflatables, dance in the water and play some pool games. Tickets for all KidsFest events will be available on the KidsFest website from 9am, Tuesday 4 June. KidsFest brochures will be delivered to Christchurch primary schools at the end of this week. They will also be available at local libraries and service centres.
