|Built as a memorial to those who died in World War I, the Errington War
Memorial Hall opened its doors on March 22nd, 1922. It is maintained by a non-profit
society made up of volunteers who sponsor cultural, social and recreational activities
for the community.
The Hall is located in Errington at 1390 Errington Road, approximately 6km southwest of Parksville on central Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. For a map and directions to the Hall - click here: Location For rental information - click: Rental
It is with heavy hearts, that we have to report the passing of a long-time Errington resident and member of the Hall Association, David Malek. He contracted double pneumonia in April and was hospitalized. In spite of his fighting spirit, and best medical efforts, with lungs compromised by a child hood bought with polio, he succumbed on May 9, 2017. He had served as President, Vice President and Hall board member for many years, beginning in the early 1980's. Always an advocate for the disabled, he was the driving force behind the construction of the Universal Access Ramp now the entrance to the Hall, which he officially opened on Hi Neighbour day in 2013. Another visible legacy of his effort is the Community Stage, which hosts live music every summer Saturday at the Market in the Park. David had been, since its genesis, a part of our annual vaudeville show 'A NIght at the Palace' as a producer, musician, singer, actor and master of ceremonies. He was a also a master of disguise - appearing in many imaginitive get-ups on our annual Pumpkin Trail or Halloween Dances. Our deepest sympathies go out to his partner, children, family and the hundreds of people, from Errington and beyond who knew and loved him. It is hard to imagine the Hall and Errington without David. David, you will be greatly missed. Thanks for the memories.

This year’s 8th annual Errington World Music Camp offers instruction in playing African marimba and Brazilian samba percussion. The program enhances cultural awareness, extends musical skills, builds confidence, and promotes friendships through group activities and ensemble playing.
While the intermediate and performance classes are already full, there are spaces available for beginners to enjoy this energy-filled, musically inspiring program. The beginners camp runs Monday to Friday from 10am to 12:30pm. A Friday evening public concert recital ends the program by giving participants the opportunity to share the music they’ve learned.
Beginners’ fees are $75 for the five half days.
Please contact coordinator Valerie Dare, email@example.com, if you have questions or would like to register your child.
