- FESTA 2013: Canterbury Tales
- Canterbury Tales was a carnivalesque procession through the central city, led by Free Theatre Christchurch. A procession of large puppets and masked performers moved from the Bridge of Remembrance along the river to the Worcester Street Bridge, before ending up at the heart of the city in Cathedral Square. Along the way, the procession engaged with different tales of Canterbury urbanism, performed in interactive environments created by Christchurch performance groups and artists in collaboration with architecture, design and scenography students and local hospitality businesses. Spectators were able to join the procession at any point as it moved through the different sites.
