Time for Tea at Heritage Christchurch

Heritage Christchurch as proud supporter of the WORD Writers and Readers Festival is hosting a special authors’ tea on Thursday 28 August at 2 PM at Heritage Christchurch.

The event features Rosie Belton who penned the entertaining food memoir, Wild Blackberries, and Dot Smith keeper of her own castle at Oamaru in Dot- Queen of Riverstone Castle. These accomplished women will share their southern stories over a cup of tea in Maddison’s restaurant, with event host Ruth Todd from Bookenz and Plains FM.

Tickets are $35 GST inc. per person and can be booked on www.wordchristchurch.co.nz

Make a night of it and stay on at the recently reopened Heritage Christchurch from $215 GST inc a night in a luxurious fully self-contained one bedroom suite with free use of the hotel’s lap pool, sauna, jacuzzi and health club.

Heritage Christchurch set in the majestic Old Government Building offers accommodation in one and two bedroom self–contained beautifully appointed suites and recently received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award.

The hotel also offers conference facilities suitable for small to medium size events, meetings, banquets and weddings on-site.

Heritage has been part of the Christchurch hospitality industry since 1996 and survived the 2011 seismic events to emerge as one of the few remaining working heritage buildings in Christchurch. The multi-award winning building is registered as category one and formally reopened in September 2013 in its 100th year.
