We’re counting down the days to one of our most eagerly anticipated events of the year : the NZ House & Garden Tour 2017.

Bayleys is thrilled to once again be sponsoring the tour on Friday 24 March.  On the day, our team will be welcoming ticket holders to take a break at the elegant Frobisher Interiors. About 1500 people are expected to congregate at Frobisher for morning/afternoon tea or lunch.

Refreshment stops at Frobisher will take place between viewings of nine gorgeous Christchurch properties selected by NZ House & Garden.

“These homes have been featured in NZ House and Garden over the past three to four months,” Bayleys event coordinator Sue Stanaway says. “So it’ll be a real showcase of some of the city’s most gracious and interesting homes.”

With its passionate commitment to interior design, Frobisher is a dream space for the tour’s hub. Refreshments will be available at The Frobisher Expressory, where interior design meets quality coffee and food.

An added attraction for those taking part will be Bayleys stand at Frobishers, which will feature some exciting giveaways.  “We will have a competition running out of our space where people can win $300 Airpoints™,” Sue says.

Every ticket holder will receive a cardboard key in their goodie bag when they register for the day, which can be exchanged at the Bayleys stand for a real key. This can then be used to try and unlock a door. The winning key will unlock the $300 Airpoints™ prize.

This is the second year that Bayleys has sponsored the NZ House & Garden Tour, not just in Christchurch but nationwide. This year’s tour will also showcase beautiful homes and gardens in Hawkes Bay, Tauranga, Wanaka and Auckland.

“Our involvement with New Zealand House and Garden tours is a great way for us to show what we do. It’s a perfect fit for us. We had excellent feedback from our clients after last year’s tours,” Sue says.

“A lot of women, in particular, absolutely love it. They get together in groups of four or five and go out for a day looking at properties. It’s a fantastic day.”

The Christchurch event is now sold out.
