Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest is on Saturday 4 July

The film will be on the big screen accompanied by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.

The CSO production manager, Pete McInnes will be running a limited space tour backstage so you can what goes into putting together this event.

Tour is at 11.30am, and students can stay on for the rehearsal from 12-3pm.

They have limited space for this tour, and we need to confirm our final numbers by the Friday 26 June. If they still have space, we will be informed, as some schools may not take up the offer.

Students can attend the full rehearsal (with film and orchestra) at no cost, and this number isn’t limited although we will need to know the numbers expected by the 26 June. Please fill in this form if you are keen!

The actual concert is July 4th, 7pm at Horncastle Arena.
