Here’s all you need to know about the Big Freeze in Christchurch:
Stewart Plaza on High St, at the Colombo and Hereford intersection. The centre of the freeze is outside Subway and Ripcurl, and will spread outwards from there in all directions. For a street-level image of the location see this map.
It could be chilly, so dress up warm. If it’s wet, bring an umbrella… and if its really wet, the Freeze will move downstairs in the bus exchange, spreading up the stairs and along down the passage to the Colombo St entrance to the exchange…but only if it’s a downpour.
It’s going to be a good crowd, but there’s no need to huddle. The more terrain we cover the more impressive it looks.
Please leave plenty of space for non-freezers to stream through and keep well away from traffic. Safety first.
1pm sharp. It’s good to arrive in the area at least 5 minutes earlier, but please keep moving till we Freeze. If you’re worried about being late, you can sync your timepiece with the official Freeze clock. If you are late, we will enjoy seeing you do an exceptional morph from running human to frozen human.
Freeze as you please! You’ll know when to freeze when you hear a whistle. When the whistle sounds again after five minutes, our time is up. Resume motion and smile – you’ve Done Good.
Thanks for supporting united action on climate change this World Environment Day.
Now tell all your friends to come too!
