WORD GALA: THIS PLACE YOU RETURN TO IS HOME

The idea of home has been at the forefront of global consciousness in recent times: staying home, coming home, struggling to get home, finding a new home when the old one is no longer safe. Taking our title from ex-pat New Zealand author Kirsty Gunn, resident in Scotland, we ask five of our festival stars to tell us about their place to return to, their tūrangawaewae, or how our homes have shaped us. Audiences who have attended previous galas will know this is a night of new and original storytelling not to be missed. Featuring Patricia Grace, Rick Gekoski, Sue Kedgley, Tayi Tibble and Kate Camp, hosted by Michèle A’Court.

Friday, 27th August
James Hay Theatre, Christchurch Town Hall 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm $38/36 (Service fees apply)
