TV2 KidsFest box office opens this Saturday, 21 June

Tickets for TV2 KidsFest, New Zealand’s favourite festival for children, go on sale at the Town Hall box office and Ticketek outlets around the city this Saturday, 21 June at 10am.

To celebrate the opening of ticket sales, CoolStuff and the KidsFest Art Car will be making appearances at ticket outlets throughout the day, beginning with the Town Hall box office at 10am.

The 17th annual TV2 KidsFest will host over 200 events throughout Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri. This year’s imagination-themed festival runs from Saturday, 5 July through Friday, 18 July.

Kids should start planning their TV2 KidsFest adventure now. They need to discuss with a grown-up all the things they want to see and do during their school holidays.

Tickets are sure to be in high demand for some of this year’s highlights, such as the Singapore Airlines StarFest talent quest final, with hosts the Funky Monkeys in their first Christchurch performance. Plus What Now presenters will announce the national children’s song and give out the What Now Children's video award.

If children have not yet received a brochure through their school, they can get one at any Council Service Centre or Library.

Visit www.kidsfest.co.nzor listen to The Breeze (94.5FM) for the latest up-to-date festival information.
