Anthony Harper Summer Theatre: The Little Prince

An exciting, quirky and magical outdoor theatre show for all ages!

ST18 CCC Web tiles 1140x500 Summer Theatre2

Two Productions who surged into Christchurch with Moby Dick, bring life to the classic French tale of The Little Prince using masks, puppets, and large scale tricks to transform the Botanic Gardens into the intergalactic journey of wildness and whimsy.

This is a free event, however koha donations would be gratefully accepted by the production company.

Getting there

The Murray Aynsley Lawn is located on the hospital side of the gardens, in between the Heritage Rose Garden and the Daffodil Woodland.


There are two public car parks in the Botanic Gardens, one at the Riccarton Avenue entrance and one at the Armagh Street entrance. You are welcome to park in either of these places for up to 180 minutes free of charge.
There are four disability car parks in the Riccarton car park and five disability car parks in the Armagh car park. Mobility cards must be displayed in vehicles.

By bike

There are bike racks at the three main entrances - in both the Armagh and Riccarton Avenue carparks, as well as near the entrance to the Gardens on Rolleston Avenue.

By bus

The closest bus route to the Gardens is via the Yellow Line, which stops along Riccarton Avenue.
Please visit Metro Info for information on bus routes and timetables as they are subject to change.
