Anna is available to talk to us about the Trinity Church and give us the inside tour and interesting history of the Isaac Theatre.
Upon leaving the Isaac Theatre Royal we will make our way the short distance to Christchurch Cathedral where Mark Gerard, chairman of Historic Places Christchurch, will tell us more about the options for the future of the Cathedral and some interesting information you probably haven’t yet heard.
