Lyttelton SummerFest

You can trust Lyttelton to put on a great summer festival! . . .

Our SummerFest will involve many events around Lyttelton Harbour, including two major events run by Project Lyttelton:

The Lyttelton Tea Party - a night of music all over Lyttelton, featuring Ahoribuzz and MC Tali, as well as many other much-loved bands. Friday 7th February - tickets on sale in January

The Big Pirate Beach Picnic Party - an afternoon of piratical games, watersports, activities, music and food at Corsair Bay. Saturday 8th February - free entry

Reusable cups

Only Globelet reusable cups are being used at the street party for ALL drinks and soup. Globelets are New Zealand-made and are recyclable, reusable, BPA-free. You buy your globelet for $2 when you buy your first drink, then the Globelet is yours to use for the night (you can even rinse it at our rinse station!). At the end of the night you can take it home or return it for a refund.
