Earth's Fury Roadshow

Earth's Fury Roadshow, a touring interactive exhibition featuring a number of hands-on displays showing the effects of natural disasters, opens to the public today at Riccarton Raceway. Arranged by Civil Defence and supported by displays from local emergency management partners, the interactive exhibition aims to educate the public about the work of the emergency services and their role in coping with natural disasters. Earth's Fury Roadshow is open daily from 10am - 4pm from Wednesday May 3 until Friday May 5 and on Sunday 7 May.

This world class exhibition has attracted bookings from more than 1,700 students for the Christchurch venue alone. Over the coming 12 weeks, the exhibition will tour eight venues throughout the Canterbury region. Entry is by gold coin donation.
