The heart of The Cultch, our original 200-seat theatre has been home to hundreds of local and international dance, music, and theatre performances over the past four decades. Our 2008 renovations transformed the beloved space into a state-of-the-art theatre while still retaining the memories of performances past.

Please note, the Historic Theatre balcony is only accessible via the staircase.

This concert marks the launch of Beyond Forgetting, an anthology of poems paying tribute to Purdy from Canada’s best-known writers, published in honour of Purdy's 100th birthday. MORE
