Point of Interest
“As one of New Zealand’s largest indoor entertainment venues, the Horncastle Arena attracts leading international artists, performers and sports teams to Christchurch. Concerts here are a big deal, and fans travel from all over the country to take in the sights, sounds, excitement and adrenalin on display. Conveniently located in Addington, the arena boasts over 4,000m2 of floor space – an area that is readily available for the big Christchurch events and easily adaptable for the smaller ones. Clever design integrations mean the venue can quickly transform from a netball court to a 7000-seat concert arena. Such flexibility ensures Horncastle Arena can cater for exhibitions, expos, concerts, conferences and gala dinners.”
“Discounted shopping mall, but can be a nuisance to get to if you don't have a car. If you do visit, I recommend the 5min drive further out of town to the Cookie Time factory!”
