WORD Christchurch

The idea of home has been at the forefront of global consciousness in recent times: staying home, coming home, struggling to get home, finding a new home when the old one is no longer safe. Taking our title from ex-pat New Zealand author Kirsty Gunn, resident in Scotland, we ask five of our festival stars to tell us about their place to return to, their tūrangawaewae, or how our homes have shaped us. Audiences who have attended previous galas will know this is a night of new and original storytelling not to be missed. Featuring Patricia Grace, Sue Kedgley, Tayi Tibble and Kate Camp and hosted by  WORD Christchurch Festival programme co-directors Rachael King and Nic Low.


Please note that due to COVID disruptions, Sue Kedgley, Tayi Tibble and Kate Camp will now appear via video link, and Michèle A'Court and Rick Gekoski are no longer taking part.

Please note: All events are general admission seating. The safety of our audience is paramount: please arrive early, scan in and wear a mask. Audience numbers are capped under COVID Alert Level 2 and social distancing measures will be in place within each venue.
