Art Vancouver is a multi-day art fair event that provides the perfect west coast setting for those looking to showcase, view or purchase artwork on an international stage. Attracting a diverse market of professional artists, collectors and art lovers, the event includes hundreds of artist booths, panel talks, live art demonstrations and painting competitions.

Vagabond Players and Capricorn Theatre Productions Present Confessions of a Grocery Clerk which runs from Dec. 1 -18, 2022 with performances Thursday – Saturday at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm.

Written by a local playwright, it’s an original family friendly musical comedy that follows the experiences of five women who work at the grocery store. Based on real life events, the audience will be laughing at these relatable situations.

One of the Vancouver Chamber Music Society audiences’ most well-loved chamber ensembles, the Vancouver Cello Quartet returns to New Westminster on November 27, 2022 at 3:00 PM at the Anvil Centre theatre. The Vancouver Cello Quartet filled in for an international ensemble facing travel restrictions early this year and received a warm welcome at the Anvil Centre. New Westminster audiences get a rare chance to hear the Vancouver Cello Quartet twice locally twice this year with a brand new program featuring some of the most well-loved pieces of classical music arranged beautifully for cellos. Formed in 2012, the Vancouver Cello Quartet is comprised of four dedicated Vancouver-based professional cellists. Their love for the cello and the unique rich combination of four cellos envelops listeners in the concert hall. Experience classical masterpieces with a lush twist this November!
