    Relief a popular Christchurch outdoor event managed to slip in before Covid wreaked havoc on the country

    Relief a popular Christchurch outdoor event managed to slip in before Covid wreaked havoc on the country


    The move to Red has sparked a string of event cancellations.

    Across the country, the New Zealand Masters Games in Dunedin and the New Zealand Fashion Week in Auckland have been cancelled.

    But before that, the Sparks concert got to have its moment in the spotlight - making a return to North Hagley Park on Saturday.

    Events Production Team Leader Drew Urlichs says they've been very lucky to have been able to run a major event, before finding out about the move into Red.
