Sunday Bandstand: perfect picnic material


Sunday Bandstand: perfect picnic material

Sunday Bandstand is back for SummerTimes 2014, showcasing outstanding local brass and pipe bands in some of the most picturesque pockets of Christchurch from 2 February – 30 March.

Paul Kean, Christchurch City Council Events Business Coordinator, says the Sunday Bandstand series provides perfect picnic material.

“This year’s venues include the Central Lawn in the Botanic Gardens, a new seaside location near Cave Rock in Sumner and, on one special occasion on 9 February, at Riccarton (Deans) Bush with the All Christchurch Pipe Bands Festival,” he says.

“Sunday Bandstand appeals to the dedicated music-lover looking for impeccably-timed tunes, as well as the casual visitor looking for a sunny afternoon and a pretty backdrop. The music creates a beautiful ambience as people wander around the gardens or play on the beach.”

The Sunday Bandstand concerts are free events, part of the Garden City SummerTimes festival. For more information visit www.summertimes.co.nz.

Gordon Campbell:
On Andrew Little’s Debut, Mockingjay, And Drunk Texting

John Key’s credibility has taken a hammering this week – at least among the 50% of the electorate who have always had doubts about him on that score.

The other substantial story of the week has been about Andrew Little’s debut as Labour leader, which has received top marks, especially among the 25% of the electorate still voting Labour. According to some reports, the Labour caucus has been ‘in seventh heaven’ about Little’s success this week in taking it to the government in the House. More>>

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament.
