|Built as a memorial to those who died in World War I, the Errington War

for the community.

Yes, it was 1915 when our little park was first cleared - we celebrated by having events like the Auction, Lunch and Variety Show in the Park, not in the Hall. Those that came watched dramatized scenes of milestones in the story of our Park and the first school also begun in 1915. People also took the time check out the newly re-surfaced trails.
Held this summer from August 10 to August 28 there werre even more opportunities to experience world cultures through music and dance. The Errington War Memorial Hall Associationís highly successful world music camp was expanded 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 took 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. They enjoyed the opportunity to perform for family and friends at the end of each week in a concert in the Hall.
A great list of entertainments coming in Winter of 2015 and Spring 2016. You'll find them by clicking on the Calendar of Events button above.
