Forget Me Not Memorial Trail

30 September - 13 October 2019 - Rutherford's Den

Forget Me Not Memorial Trail is a special scavenger hunt for families to enjoy that is part of the BECA Heritage Festival 2019.

Collect the trail activity booklet from either venue listed below and go on a hunt around Christchurch’s arts precinct looking for memorials that celebrate the achievements of special New Zealanders (and a few ancient Romans for good measure!).

At each memorial you will find the answer to a question in the activity booklet. The trail will take participants along Worcester Boulevard between The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi ora, botanic gardens, Canterbury Museum, and Christchurch Art Gallery.

Bring a pen!

Please note: Caregiver supervision is required.
