Over 60 events are coming to the district as part of the 2018/19 Summer in Selwyn event programme, kicking off in December and continuing until late March.

Selwyn residents will receive their Summer in Selwyn events guide in the mail this week.

There is something for everyone to enjoy this summer. Council-run events include two outdoor movies at Lincoln and Leeston and two drive-in movies at Rolleston and Darfield, starting with the Christmas classic movie Elf on Sunday 16 December. Pool Parties will include a special Christmas Pool Party at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, as well as parties at Darfield, Sheffield and Southbridge community pools.

The ever popular Teddy Bears’ Picnic will return to Rolleston Community Centre and Rolleston Reserve with jam-packed family fun.

Picnic in the Park events and Summer Skate/Scooter Jams are coming to eight locations around the district, while a new event – Summer 3X3 Basketball Jam – encourages anyone to jump into a game and have a go.Summer in Selwyn

Other entertainment includes live music at local parks with A Month of Sundays in February.

Residents can bring a picnic and relax while listening to an outstanding line-up of our local talented musicians at the Lincoln Green.

A number of Selwyn District Libraries events are also taking place over summer including craft and story book workshops, Summer Reading Bingo and games challenges, spurring on multigenerational fun.

A great range of community-organised events are on offer too, including Christmas parades, fêtes and picnics, and fitness-related events. For a list of Summer in Selwyn events, visit Facebook or our website.
