What makes a capital city? Location? Population? International reputation? Does Christchurch fill any of the criteria?

The Christchurch Symphony Orchestra will be hosting a capital debate about whether Christchurch should have a go at being New Zealand’s capital city after Wellington’s hogged the position for 150 years.

Battling with their sharp wit and pertinent points, former Christchurch mayor Garry Moore, Councillor Raf Manji, and mountaineer and researcher Mark Inglis will fight for Christchurch’s candidacy. They will be facing Porirua’s rapping mayor Nick Leggett, comedian Penny Ashton, and Kaine Thompson, chief of staff of the Wellington City Council’s Chief Executive’s Office.

Moderated by Political Analyst and Chair of the CSO Trust, Dr Therese Arseneau, The Capital Debate will be a fun evening of tongue-in-cheek arguments, light-hearted disparagement, and general friendly rivalry.

Join us on Tuesday 24th November for this fundraising event at the Charles Luney Auditorium. Tickets are $40 and include a pre-debate drink.

When: Tuesday, 24th November, 2015
Where: Charles Luney Auditorium
Time: Doors open at 6.00pm for pre-debate drinks with the main event starting at 6.30pm.
