Cathedral Square, locally known as The Square, is both the geographical and metaphorical heart of the city of Christchurch.

The Square is surrounded by heritage-listed buildings, such as Christchurch Cathedral, and is the main meeting place for locals and a regular site of street performers and speakers, making it a fitting home for the main hub of BREAD & CIRCUS – World Buskers Festival. 

Don’t miss the incredible Architects of Air: Arborialis Luminarium which will be at Cathedral Square throughout the Festival!

Architects of Air and Cathedral Square are wheelchair accessible.

The closest Parking is located at 32 Cathedral Square, Christchurch Central, Christchurch 8011, New Zealand
