    Still partway through a major renovation and strengthening following the 2010/2011 quakes so some areas are still off limits. Yet to regain it's vibrant atmosphere but making good strides. The great hall is always worth a visit.

    Great night, the accoustics were great to listen to the rock and roll of the greatest band in history. The seating was not the best, just 25mm to narrow to sit for long periods and there is marked shortage of toilets especially when the bar is serving drinks and the mad rush at the interval begins. Apart from that it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and it will not stop me going to other concerts.

    The Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings are the only surviving provincial government buildings still in existence in New Zealand. Sadly, like much of the city, they were heavily damaged during the 2010-11 earthquakes and are presently not in use. It seems some reconstructions, such as the historic stone chamber may come to fruition in the future.

    At present, you can at least walk along the outside of the Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings on Armagh and Durham Streets. There are information panels posted with historic context and background so you can at least learn about these important government buildings in Christchurch.

    Hopefully, eventual restorations will take place bringing the Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings back to life for the people of Christchurch and visitors to the city.

    Fantastic Cafe in the Library with great service and good food choices. The library interiors are unique and modern with lovely outdoor lookouts (galleries) which give an aerial view of the CBD and beyond!
