6. Langham Court Theatre presents Sense and Sensibility (February 28th – March 17th)
You’ve never seen Austen like this! As the “greatest stage adaptation of this novel history”, this rollicking, ingeniously-staged new adaptation by Kate Hamill follows the adventures (and misadventures) of the Dashwood sisters – sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne – after their sudden loss of fortune. Bursting with humour, emotions, and bold theatrically, Sense and Sensibility asks: when reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
7. Souper Bowls for Hope (April 5th)
Souper Bowls of Hope is Victoria Youth Empowerment Society’s Iconic Lunchtime event that brings the Citizens of Greater Victoria & the Downtown Business community together to raise funds in support of street entrenched, homeless and youth at risk in the downtown core.
8. The Arrogant Worms live at Dave Dunnet Community Theatre (March 20th)
The year was 1991. A beacon of hope was lit and has shone brightly ever since – The Arrogant Worms. The Arrogant Worms began as a comedy troupe performing songs and sketches on campus radio. The early feedback on the live shows was clear: lose the sketches. So the songs endured and they all remain because the band hates to throw anything out.
9. Victoria Beer Week (March 2nd – 10th)
Victoria Beer Week is a nine-day festival of events highlighting a broad selection of BC craft breweries while educating Greater Victoria residents about craft beer. VBW is fuelled by events that pair BC craft beer and local Victoria artisan food vendors, with a clear focus on showcasing quality BC craft beer and educating beer enthusiasts. Smaller tastings, seminars and micro-events happen at various venues throughout the week.
10. Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects (March 1st – 28th)
