The Errington Hall serves as the creative hub of our community.
We foster arts and culture through our events and programs and also support the arts-based activities of non-profit community groups and organizations.
Our primary goal is to foster the arts in our community. We present concerts and dances, a monthly coffee house, and youth arts camp. We produce annually “A Night at the Palace,” a vaudeville burlesque extravaganza with live music. New additions to our programming are a children’s choir, after school music classes, and a children’s dance club.
We also organize a Christmas Concert, Christmas Craft Faire, a Halloween performance arts evening in the Errington Park, and the Hi Neighbour Day celebration of community arts, music, and pastimes in August. Our set of djembe-style hand drums is a valued community resource used for drumming classes and youth camps. We host the annual Islands Luthiers Guild showcase as well as film screenings and fundraising shows for non-profit groups. The hall is also the venue for the Islands Celtic Festival. Independent schools use our large and small halls for rehearsals and performances.
