Children dancing at Discomania

KidsFest is back, with more events than ever for Selwyn young people to enjoy these school holidays.

The popular annual festival of events is running from 10-25 July with over 70 events.

Popular events have been expanded such as the high ropes session, which has grown with four high ropes sessions now scheduled. Following its popularity last year more space has been made available for this year’s show by Christchurch magician Elgregoe. The show on 12 July will be held at the Rolleston Community Centre with space for up to 600 people including caregivers.

Events have also been added in more locations across the district. They include the first Discomania and Selwyn Kids Market events being held in Darfield. Louise Kerr, the creator of the popular Sport Suzi shows will be bringing her hilarious new silent clown show ‘The Paper Girl’ for its first Selwyn performances at Ladbrooks Hall.

The Eye Spy Selwyn quiz is also back, encouraging young people to explore the district by setting challenges to visit different Selwyn sites and answer the quiz questions.

Ballooning Canterbury is once again offering Eye Spy Selwyn quizzers the chance to win a family hot air balloon ride for four if they answer a question and collect a stamp at each Council facility. Completed cards of stamps that are returned to the customer centre at the Council‘s Rolleston offices will go into the draw.

A full timetable of events is available on our KidsFest page.
