From 7.30-10pm on Saturday 1st February Hagley Park (Christchurch) will be filled with a symphony of sparkles, space and stars in this year’s ASB Classical Sparks.

The Christchurch Symphony Orchestra will be joined by New Zealand’s own ‘Queens of Comedy’ The Topp Twins, for what is guaranteed to be an evening packed with laughs, music and pyrotechnics.

An event for the whole family, join the CSO and conductor Kenneth Young as they perform some of the most well-loved orchestral pieces such as Waltz from the Blue Danube, the theme from Onedin Line and the Thunder and Lighting Polka.

The evening will finish with an impressive fireworks display. Bring a picnic or treat yourself to one of the array of food stalls on site.
