Bringing together communities of Christchurch for 156 years, the Show has gone from strength-to-strength. Promoting inclusion, acceptance and diversity, the Show champions all that is great about our region allowing visitors to take part in traditional activities focused on our heritage and culture, along with supporting the great strides we are taking in agricultural and business innovation. We believe the fundamental message of the Show lends itself well to an inspirational day out for school excursions, not forgetting, of course, the amount of fun on offer too!

On Wednesday the 13th and Thursday the 14th November 2019, School Groups are invited to attend the New Zealand Agricultural Show at a discounted rate.

We can also provide support with Health and Safety queries, along with supplying activity sheets to help structure your day. We look forward to welcoming your school to this year’s Show!

Applications close 20th September
