Granthams Hall Benefit

February 27, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

Tickets $20 – available at Gaia’s Fair Trade and Laedeli Gifts & Cards

Lower Coast musicians, artists and writers are coming together to show their love for Granthams Landing Community Hall, one of the handful of heritage buildings remaining on the Coast.

A benefit concert for the hall will take place Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse. Award-winning playwright and songwriter David King will co-host with jazz diva Wanda Nowicki. The line-up features Anna Lumiere, the Billy Hillpicker Band, w.b. fitzsimmons, Clay Hepburn, Charlotte Wrinch, Chris Jordan-Knox and more. The event will also feature a silent art auction, with donations from clay artist Susanne Biden, painters Marlene Vermuelen, Maggie Citrin and Jan Poynter, multi-media artist Diego Samper, and others.

The little hall tucked into the edge of the forest on Church Road, just above Marine Drive, was built in 1931 with volunteer labour. It was first owned by the United Church and used briefly as a church before it was turned over to the Granthams Landing Property Owners Association, then the Granthams Landing Improvement District, and finally, when the latter dissolved, to the SCRD. It was closed last May due to structural problems with the roof and foundation.
