A Lecture by Dr Ian Lochhead
Rose Chapel, 866 Colombo Street at 6pm Wednesday 28th October.
Ian Lochhead, editor of the book, The Christchurch Town Hall 1965 -2019: A Dream Renewed, reflects on the building’s national and international significance.
He asks the question, how did a small city, far from the world’s centres of culture, come to build an auditorium that helped to redefine what a late twentieth-century concert hall could be?
The lecture also examines the Town Hall's importance for Christchurch's identity in the 21st century.
Doors open 5.30pm.
