Earthquake Stories Walk

Join Our Stories Project for a guided audio walk of the central city, where you’ll hear stories from people who were in the city on 22 February 2011. The stories have been sourced from the CEISMIC digital archive held by the University of Canterbury.

You’ll be provided with headsets to hear these first-hand stories as we walk through the places where they happened. Make sure to book in for this free session, taking place at 10am Sunday from Quake City Museum.

Check out the locally-made New Zealand handcrafts and vintage treasures. Take a look through jewellery, timber craft, clothing, woollen handcrafts, toys, natural body products and much more – plus, get to meet the owners.


The annual Plantarama at Cashmere Presbyterian Church is on again this year from 9am to midday Saturday! Come along and stock up with plants for the vegetable garden, plants for the flower garden and tools to help with the process.
