Join artist Janine Wheeler in the Great Hall and Apple Suites Galleries this evening in celebration of her solo exhibition (through) Thick & Thin. Light refreshments in the Great Hall Gallery, second floor.

All welcome.

Young artists in our 2018 summer camps enjoyed a gallery tour and workshop with exhibiting artist Janine Wheeler. So much fun to meet “a real artist!”

Halloween night is spooky in the galleries.

Drop by to trick or treat and take in the installation Apparitions, as Quint’s Haunting takes over the exhibition. Artist Troy Hourie, as the valet Quint in Benjamin Britten’s opera The Turn of the Screw, becomes an element of his installation as the ‘haunting’ commands the space. Enjoy a unique – and creepy – seasonal art event.

All welcome. If you dare.

Apparitions continues through November 10.

New to the performing arts line-up for 2018-19, the Meridian Magic Carpet Series offers experiences for our youngest audience members, to discover the joy and wonder of live professional performance. Through music, theatre, puppetry, created especially for toddlers and up, giggling and wiggling is encouraged, and parents are encouraged to sit down with the little ones to enjoy the event at their level. Enjoy three Meridian Magic Carpet performances in this introductory year!

In a forest where rivers sing, trees giggle and curious dragonflies come to visit, a grumpy Old Man lives in his little house. Every day is exactly the same, and that’s how he likes it….until one day a magical creature leaps into his life and everything changes! A heartwarming tale of new-found friendship, this is the perfect introduction to theatre for very young audiences. This puppetry performance is accompanied by pre-and-post show audience engagement.
Suitable for all ages. Includes post-show art activity.

In April 2017,  the Aurora Cultural Centre, Aurora Historical Society and Town of Aurora Museum & Archives commemorated the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. It was a memorable night of songs, letters from the front ready by the cadets, and a moving display of heritage artifacts and archival material.

Based on the overwhelming community support that night, we have once again partnered together to shine a light on a defining time in Canada’s history. We welcome back vocalist Suzi Wesson and pianist Doug Balfour with a new collection of songs from the late-war and post-war era, a pop-up local artifact display and stories read from the local headlines.

Free admission; suitable for young people and adults.
