Good point, well made. Vicki Anderson on the Town Hall that belongs to everyone:

The Christchurch Town Hall does not belong to the arts community, it belongs to everyone. The Christchurch Town Hall was not built to just cater to the needs of the CSO, the Court Theatre or any other segment of the community who might want to do jazz hands. It is a civic building, built to cater to the many and varied needs of all of the people of this city.
