Last day tomorrow to buy Ellerslie tickets at $22

Tomorrow is the last day for Christchurch residents and ratepayers to buy specially priced $22 tickets to the 2013 Ellerslie International Flower Show.

The special offer is limited to four tickets each and ends at 5pm tomorrow (Friday 30 November). This is the fifth year that residents’ tickets have been offered tickets at the reduced rate.

Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker says, “Many residents have already taken advantage of the special offer and we don’t want anyone to miss out. I would encourage all Ellerslie enthusiasts to get down to their closest Council Service Centre or jump online to take advantage of this affordable way for them to enjoy the show.”

Visitors to next year’s show are again guaranteed to wowed by the high-quality, world-class horticultural exhibits that will be on display from 6 to 10 March in North Hagley Park.

From 1 December, Christchurch residents and ratepayers can still buy tickets to the show, but these will be at the Early Bird price of $29 each until 15 February 2013.

The specially priced tickets can be purchased from the Council’s Service Centres, the Civic Building in Hereford Street or by going online at www.ellerslieflowershow.co.nz
