Last days to buy Ellerslie tickets at $22

Christchurch residents and ratepayers have only seven days left to buy tickets to the Ellerslie International Flower Show at the special price of $22 each.

The special offer is limited to four tickets each and ends at 5pm next Friday 30 November.

“We wanted to make it easy and affordable for as many of our residents as possible to attend the Ellerslie International Flower Show in 2013 by again offering the resident/ratepayer special,” says Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker.

“This is the fifth year we have offered the residents tickets at the special price of $22.”

He says the community has shown such fantastic support for Ellerslie in the past four years. “This is reflected in both good ticket sales and the growing number of exhibitions for the 2013 Show.”

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.

Specially priced Christchurch residents and ratepayers can be purchased from the Council’s Service Centres, the Civic Building in Hereford Street, or by going online -

The 2013 Ellerslie International Flower Show will be held in North Hagley Park from 6 to 10 March.
