Getting to DramFest 2020:


DramFest 2020 is coming home to the city centre, taking place at the newly refurbished Christchurch Town Hall on Kilmore Street.

Our city has been slowing growing and transforming during the rebuild process, so even if you have visited us before, we encourage you to take a bit of time while you are here to explore and see the changes that have taken place.

We’ve listed below some recommendations for accommodation while you are here as well as some of our favourite haunts for a bite to eat or a beverage or two.
