“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.

Such flexibility ensures Horncastle Arena can cater for exhibitions, expos, concerts, conferences and gala dinners.”
