30 October 2009

Travellers heading off on luxury holidays in New Zealand next month will be able to celebrate local rural life at the country's biggest spring festival.

New Zealand Cup and Show week takes place in Christchurch on the South Island and will feature rodeo, theatre and dancing after getting underway with a million-dollar event at renowned racing venue Riccarton Park.

The $1 Million Magic New Zealand 2000 Guineas Day attracts the best three-year-old horses from Australasia, while off the field - punters can enjoy a parade of top fashion, live music and gourmet dining.

Legendary broadcaster Michael Parkinson will also make his first New Zealand appearance for a one-off show at Christchurch's Isaac Theatre Royal on November 7th, while November 12th will see world-class designers including Sakaguchi, Stitch Ministry, Aduki, Anna Stretton and Emma Ford show off their latest collections at Style Christchurch 2009.

Last week, a Guardian poll named New Zealand as the UK's favourite long-haul destination.
