Well we have the answer....grab some friends or the family and jump on the Diamond Harbour Ferry to cruise across Lyttleton Harbour and enjoy one of the many 'Sunday Sessions' planned this summer.... The annual summer series of Live at the Point kicked off with a mixture of gospel, country and generally sweet music from The Eastern on the 3rd January 2016. They then follow with the dates below... It's the perfect afternoon escape for local Christchurch folk or for people with friends and family visiting Christchurch...and best of all it's completey free For up to date info, pics and more check them out on Facebook The series was started a few years back after a group of local folk came together (any locals are welcome!) who have an interest in supporting the post-earthquake recovery of our community. The group has been established as a sub-committee of the Diamond Harbour Community Association and is known as SPRIG (Stoddart Point Regeneration Ideas Group). SPRIG includes representatives from all the local residents associations, and seeks to work with all local groups.
