|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
Yes, it was 1915 when our little park was set aside - we'll celebrate by having events like the Auction, Lunch and Variety Show in the Park, not in the Hall. Come along and learn some Errington history and check out the newly re-surfaced trails. For a more detailed schedule, click Hi Neighbour Day
This summer there are even more opportunities to experience world cultures through music and dance. The Errington War Memorial Hall Associationís highly successful world music camp is expanding from one week to three, thanks to funding support from the BC Arts Council, BC Gaming Commission, and the Regional District of Nanaimo. As well as African Marimba, Drumming and Dance in Week One, children ages 8 and up can take Japanese Taiko Drumming, Celtic Fiddle, and Tin Whistle in Week Two, and Brazilian Samba Percussion and Dance and an Introduction to World Guitar in Week Three. The opportunity to perform for family and friends at the end of each week is always a highlight.
Please note that the world music camp is intended for young musicians who are serious about extending their skills. Instructors are professional musicians who are also experienced teachers. Participants can choose one or more weeks at a sliding fee schedule.
Week 1 - August 10-14 African Marimba, Drumming, and Dance. Please note, this session is FULL.
Week 2 - August 17-21 Japanese Taiko Drumming and Celtic Fiddle/ Tin Whistle
Week 3 - August 24-28 Brazilian Samba and World Guitar

The sun shone, the Neighbours gathered, and we all enjoyed the Breakfast, Art & Crafts Display, Farmers Market, Zucchini Cross Races, Hi Neighbour Parade, Goods and Services Auction and the Dance. Again this year, and a real hit, was the Variety Show. Our thanks go out to all the volunteers who helped make the day such a success. We all contribute to keeping the Hall alive and well.
