Let’s Not Forget Tour with Counterspin Media

Saturday, May 28, 2022

2:30pm – 6:00pm

On 28 May, Counterspin Media and the Let’s Not Forget Tour reaches Christchurch. This special event will be held at The Lotus-Heart in our marquee with talks, questions and answers, and live music.

Kelvyn Alp and Hannah Spierer wish to hear from you, the people. They also want to know your vision for New Zealand going forward, discuss local solutions for local problems and reconnect people to see a return of the thriving New Zealand community spirit.

  • 2.30pm Speakers. Followed by Questions and Answers. 
  • Live Music at 4.30pm. Yulia Townsend will join us and sing, accompanied by accomplished Jazz Guitarist Hanafi Machirus, and Associate Principal Cellist of Christchurch Symphony Tomas Hurnik. Tomas will also play some solo Bach pieces.

Everyone is welcome! Seating is limited so please reserve a seat by clicking the “register” button below. 

A raffle and merchandise will be available at the event. Cash only. Donations towards the costs of the nationwide Counterspin Tour are welcomed.

We will have heaters in the marquee but recommend dressing warmly or bring a blanket. If you have a folding chair you could leave in the car and bring out if needed, that would be great 🙂

Please note that if you would like to dine at The Lotus-Heart before or after the event, reservations are highly recommended – If you are planning to have lunch before the event, a 12 noon reservation is recommended to give you time to dine and then move from the restaurant to our marquee around 2.15pm to get a seat.
