Bread & Circus - Backyard Buskers Festival 2021 takes place across three weekends and summer school holidays in the heart of Central Christchurch.

The 2021 festival features the best hand-picked local artistic talent, celebrating the rich, dynamic and diverse creative culture that thrives across New Zealand.

With a focus that's firmly local, 2021 will bring a backyard celebration to remember. 

Use this link to go to the Festivals web page for further venue & booking information.

Be sure to plan how you intend to get into the City as the Festival format is going to be popular.  

Remember to use the one-way system for the quickest way to travel through and out of the City Centre. 

There are plenty of parking options available in the Central City but some locations are likely to fill up quickly, For example, Worcester St & Gloucester St car parks.

Use the Christchurch City Council's car parking tool to find out where to park and, in the case of City Council run parking buildings, how many parks are available.

If you are near a convenient bus route, then you might like to avoid the issue of parking altogether and head in on the bus. 

It's summer and now that the weather is looking better cycle into an event, or take a handy scooter. 

There are likely to be more pedestrians around the City Centre. So take extra care when driving around and be mindful of people crossing the road. 

The roadworks map will allow you to work out the best route that works for you.
