Telecom’s Christchurch Arts Festival Sponsorship

Telecom’s Christchurch Arts Festival Sponsorship Delivers A First For South Island

Telecom is bringing a taste of Europe to the Christchurch Arts Festival with its sponsorship of the “Dans Paleis” styled tent and the Telecom Jazz and Cabaret Season.

“We’re delighted to be delivering the Telecom Jazz and Cabaret Season to Christchurch people and visitors.

“The performances will be inside a purpose-built European style wooden carnival tent,” Telecom Chief Executive Theresa Gattung announced today.

“It’s the first time something like this has been seen in the South Island.”

The wooden walled tent is modelled on the Dans Paleis and the Spiegeltent. It has been built in New Zealand and will be used for performances for the first time at the Christchurch Arts Festival.

“Performances at the Dans Paleis at the Wellington Arts Festival last year were a huge hit. The atmosphere created inside the wooden structure was spellbinding, and it became a huge attraction.

“Telecom is pleased to be able to be part of bringing a similar sort of magic venue and experience to Christchurch.

“By getting behind the Telecom Jazz and Cabaret Season we’re showing our commitment to Christchurch and to providing innovative solutions for customers. We seek out new opportunities to deliver for our customers, and our Festival sponsorship illustrates this,” Ms Gattung said.
