About v1


Management and Operation: 

RAZZLE DAZZLE ‘EM CHRISTCHURCH is owned and operated by Great Tour Experiences Pty Ltd. The event is held in association with Christchurch School of Music and Christchurch City Council and is specially designed to provide International Schools the opportunity of touring to the garden city of Christchurch, gateway to New Zealand’s South Island.

Charmaine Edwards has had years of experience in organising and behind the scenes administration in her family-owned company which had organised 16 similar festivals between 1997 and 2014 when it was sold. Now as Managing Director of her own Company she has decided to establish a similar festival in the newly refurbished city of Christchurch. This is a wonderful city and has the most modern music and arts facilities than any other city in New Zealand

Charmaine is committed and passionate about what she does and loves working with people and providing them the most amazing experiences during their travel. We are looking forward to taking people to Christchurch and to see RAZZLE DAZZLE ‘EM CHRISTCHURCH grow over the next few years.

The secret for success lays in the Music Faculty chosen to educate the students and tune the performers to perform at their very best at the many public performances.  Razzle Dazzle ‘EM Christchurch, 2021 will be led by Calder Prescott.

Soft Luggage:

This is included in your tour. (Australia Schools only)

These types of bags are easier to transport on flat surfaces, which makes it much easier to stack under the coach with a large group on tour and if you are a music group you will need to also carry your music instruments.
