John Grenell Memorial Concert Fundraiser


Our father John Grenell was a country music icon and a national treasure. His music has inspired and moved thousands over the decades and his passing on July 27th 2022 has lead to many requests of how people can enable a celebration of his life.

We are organising a public memorial for John Grenell, to be held in Christchurch this Saturday the 6th of August at 2pm in the James Hay Theatre, Otautahi Christchurch Town Hall.

Donations will help fund the memorial that can be attended by members of the public and to be streamed online for those unable to attend.

The funds will be used to hire the PA, audio engineer, Audio Visual capabilities and the livestream and any other incidental costs associated with the event.

This is our way to pay tribute to our father and be able to share his precious memory with the public he entertained for over sixty years.

Any help to achieve this would be very much appreciated.
