The Christchurch Town Hall is a brutalist masterpiece. Local architects, Sir Miles Warren and Maurice Mahoney designed the Town Hall, which was opened in 1972.

The Douglas Lilburn auditorium is known for its acoustics, which are considered to be among the best in the world, and the venue can seat up to 2500 people. The building plays host to a number of well known art works including Rainbow Pieces by Pat Hanley, Marimekko designed curtains and the popular Ferrier fountain.

The Christchurch Town Hall was damaged in the 2011 earthquake but extensive restoration and strengthening saw it reopen to the public in 2019. The building is classified as a Category 1 Historic Place.
