The Christchurch Arts Festival opens today (12 August 2011.) The festival includes music, theatre, dance, food, visual arts and other events. It happens once every two years. This year the focus is on Christchurch; lots of well-known Christchurch artists are coming home to Christchurch to perform. If you are in Christchurch, take a look at the festival calendar.
