Could it be? Only 21 more days until the 2016 Ontario Festival of Small Halls starts? So exciting!
Tickets have been flying this week. In fact, the concert at the Almonte Old Town Hall featuring Basia Bulat and Kelly Sloan is officially sold out! Big thanks to all who purchased tickets and we look forward to seeing you soon.
There are still two more shows in Mississippi Mills: Harrow Fair with Terry Tufts at Union Hall on Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. and Newfoundland’s Sherman Downey and Matthew Bryne, with Adam Puddington, will perform at St. Andrew’s United in Pakenham on Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. See more about the schedule here.
Did you know you can order tickets online or over the phone? Giving us a call is another great way to purchase tickets! Our number is 613.791.3476 and we’re always happy hear from you. Insider tip: don’t wait to get your tickets. There are a limited number left on numerous shows and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed! Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
In the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot about the halls and the shows in local media. We have interviews scheduled and ads running across eastern Ontario! Stay tuned to our social media as we’ll be posting our interviews so you can learn more about our upcoming shows.
Speaking of social media, we have events created for each of our shows. Please feel free to share these widely to get your friends and family on board! Make it a new tradition – we love to see the communities out in full force.
Even more community events surrounding Festival shows are being added as we draw closer to the small hall events. Stay on top of what’s going on at each cherished hall by visiting our community events link. Take in a dinner, market, community walks, or even outdoor family fun! The newest on the agenda is in Winchester on Sept. 22. Running from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the St. Paul Presbyterian Church will be holding its annual turkey dinner before the show at 517 Main St. Tickets are $14 and are available at the door only. After that, head over the Winchester Old Town Hall, as the Festival of Small Halls sees Sheesham and Lotus & ‘Son hit the stage with Box n’Bow!
We keep finding out about interesting facts to do with the small halls we hold near and dear: did you know that although the Spencerville Mill had its beginnings as a flour and grist mill, it was also a feed mill that produced Canada’s first commercial livestock feed for local farmers and feed stores throughout South Eastern Ontario? See Elliott BROOD perform in this historic setting with Trevor Alguire on Thursday, September 22 at 7:30 p.m.! Find out more here.
The countdown is on! We can’t wait to celebrate cherished community small halls with you.
