Get set for the 30th-anniversary celebration of Bread & Circus in 2023! 

We will once again bring the party to the streets of Ōtautahi Christchurch in the Summer holidays, with an action-packed event programme of world-class busking pitches, fantastic ticketed shows and eye-popping free spectacle events to celebrate the festival’s 30th birthday. 

The 2023 festival will run from 13 to 29 January, across three weekends and the summer school holidays in the heart of central Christchurch.
