The Firehall Arts Centre invites you to its annual fundraiser EAT.DRINK.PLAY. being held on Thursday, June 19th from 7 – 10 pm at the Firehall Arts Centre, 280 East Cordova Street.  You can expect an unforgettable evening that celebrates locally produced food, drink and performance.

Tastings of micro brewery Parallel 49’s seasonal offerings will be available, plus vodka and crème de cassis from Odd Society Spirits.

The celebration of all things local will continue with a feature ‘taster flight’ of live theatre, dance and music performed around the Firehall building including an acoustic performance by rising theatre star and three-time Jessie Award nominee Kayvon Kelly (Chelsea Hotel) and a performance by Proud star Emmelia Gordon.
