Christchurch Town Hall reopens its doors

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 22 February 2019

Its budget may have blown out by almost a third more than the original figure, but this weekend the doors to the Christchurch Town Hall will re-open for the first time since the 2011 earthquakes.

It was touch and go whether the 47-year-old building would even be repaired after the 6.2 quake eight years ago today. $167 million later and the city is finally getting its town hall back.

Conan Young was allowed inside for a sneak peak ahead of Saturday's official opening.
