The name’s Fawkes… Guy Fawkes.
Treetech and the Christchurch City Council are once again bringing Guy Fawkes to Christchurch with a fireworks show that will dazzle the living daylights out of you!
Celebrating 50 years of the James Bond theme songs you know and love, the Treetech Guy Fawkes Fireworks Spectacular returns to New Brighton Pier Tuesday 5 November.
Get your family and friends together and watch the sky fall with some epic pyrotechnics worthy of a Bond movie, brought to you by Treetech and with the support of radio partner the Breeze. Firework Professionals bring their creative design to accompany a spectacular choreographed display timed to a thrilling soundtrack – featuring artists from Shirley Bassey to Adele – broadcast on The Breeze 94.5FM.
Find a spot within 70 metres either side of the pier to enjoy the soundtrack on our special soundsystem worthy of Q Branch.
To grab a prime spot, why not catch a bus? Check out metroinfo.co.nz for bus timetables.
If you are driving in, there are a couple of road closures. There will be no access to:
Suggested driving routes are:
If coming in from the north, use Marine Parade, Keyes Road or New Brighton Road.
If coming in from the south, use Owles Terrace Via Pages Road or Bridge Street. Bridge Street is now open to light traffic, operating two-way traffic at 20 kilometres an hour, with a bridge weight limit of 3.5 tonnes per vehicle.
There is carparking available at Thomson Park (off Marine Parade) for a gold coin donation upon entry.
On-street parking is permitted outside the road closures. Please be considerate when parking.
Access for disabled parking in the North Ramp car park is via Pages Road.
Because many of the Port Hills roads are closed or unusable due to earthquake damage and risk of rockfall, we recommend finding a spot at ground level to watch the action.
For residents getting home after work
As many Southshore residents have been using Owles Terrace to get home while Bridge Street is under repair, we suggest taking the alternative route of Hardy Street via Seaview Road as Owles Terrace will be closed for Guy Fawkes.
