More than 450 different shows make up the ten day program of the World Busker’s Festival, held annually on the streets and public spaces of Christchurch.

Audiences of more than 250,000 theatre-goers and passers-by enjoy work devised by local and international street performers, travelling from as far away as Canada, Brazil and the UK. Visitors can expect to see the funny and the frightening, the weird and the wonderful and because this is a busker's festival all performances are free or payment is at your own discretion.
