Come globetrotting with Around the World in 80 Days!


Anthony Harper Summer Theatre and comedy director Dan Bain, from No, Octopus,

present a fresh and unique laugh-out-loud adaptation of the classic 1872 travel adventure. Experience culture, romance, and somehow, an elephant…

Will Englishman Phileas Fogg and his manservant Passepartout make it around the world in 80 days? Is Fogg really fleeing a crime scene?

Bring your deck chair, picnic snacks and sense of humour!

Enjoy sitting amongst the trees at Christchurch Botanic Gardens, and watch the crazy global escapades unfold – it’s live, outdoors, and one of a kind.

This is a free event suitable for all ages. Koha donations will be gratefully accepted by No, Octopus.
