Life outside the hospital FOR a Christchurch RMO
Many historic buildings may be gone or off limits for now, but arts and cultural pursuits remain an important part of day-to-day life in the city.
Recent years have seen the growth of a younger, hipper and infinitely more eclectic arts, culture and music scene grow, to complement the traditional focus on opera, classical music and theatre.
Christchurch is home to the World Buskers Festival, an annual event that draws performers and visitors from around the globe. Every year Arts and Jazz Festivals draw big names and newcomers alike to the city, and there’s a thriving local music scene for those who like things a little more home-grown.
Take on a House Officer job in NZ and chances are you'll have more daylight hours to enjoy the things that matter most in life, no matter which part of the country you choose. Bear in mind that the South Island enjoys a later sunset than the North, leaving long, lingering summer evenings to enjoy theatre in the park, the annual Classical Sparks musical event in legendary Hagley Park, a sidewalk dinner followed by an arts festival concert, or a foreign film with friends.
Live music in cafes and pubs, winery gigs and international acts all add up to a varied, busy entertainment calendar with something for everyone.
