Join Chris Lynch and Friends Novotel & Ibis Christchurch in supporting the Cure Kids Charity this school holidays.

Chris Lynch is an experienced puppeteer, who's worked on many children’s television shows. His puppeteering can be seen on Television New Zealand’s 24 hour channel Kidszone24. Chris has worked with Disney, puppeteering the country’s first Muppet, modelled on high profile news and current affairs veteran TV presenter Mark Sainsbury. The Muppet was made to promote The Muppets film and appeared on the front page of the country’s biggest daily newspaper, The New Zealand Herald. It also featured in many online publications, including the Wall Street Journal.

The Muppet made TV appearances on Close Up, the country’s most watched nightly current affairs show and What Now, New Zealand’s longest running children’s show. His first public appearance was at the New Zealand premiere of The Muppets, a fundraiser for Auckland Children’s Hospital. In April 2016, with permission of Sesame Workshop, the producers of Sesame Street, he travelled to Fiji wth Red Cross to help bring joy to children affected by Cyclone Winston. Chris’ enthusiasm for puppetry was inspired by Muppet creator Jim Henson. Chris was proactive in attempting to get Sesame Street back on to New Zealand TV. He visited Sesame Workshop’s headquarters in New York and spent the day with Elmo during a promotional tour in Sydney.
