Leave ordinariness and everyday routine behind and plunge into a world of high-end entertainment, abundant feasts and newfound experiences in Ōtautahi Christchurch.

This summer, Bread & Circus – World Buskers Festival invites you to step into the heart of one of the world’s most unconventional cities for a whole month of extravaganza.

The festival will bring together national and international performers in collaboration with our own local hospitality legends to create an irresistible programme of escape into food and spectacle.

Walk along the eclectic streets of the city for a never-ending show of free outdoor performances; dig deep into your pockets and applaud knock-out busking acts; discover a range of local food and drink with theatrical surprises; and completely immerse yourself in a remarkable range of ticketed shows, performed in Christchurch’s grand theatres.

Celebrating a rich 25-year history, Bread & Circus 2019 is all about taking World Buskers Festival into the future, with reimagined twists and turns.
