Old Church Theatre – Home of the Roy Bonisteel Studio


I have written about the Old Church Theatre under the heading Local Fun on my homepage of my Blog.  But I wanted to put it out as a independent Blog so people could read about this wonderful venue for entertainment.  This is, without question, one of my favourite places to go for entertainment.  The church is old and started in 1876 as a Methodist Church.  In 1994, Roy Bonisteel purchased, renovated and restored the building.  Today, Lesley Bonisteel and Brian Weston ensure there is a variety of musical entertainment as well as plays and other activities.  If you are in the local area, this is a place you must visit.

Warkworth Lilac Festival – May 2018


The Warkworth Lilac Festival is held every year in May.   Warkworth is a cute town hosting several events throughout the year.  Art in the Park, Maple Syrup Festival, Pie Baking Contest and of course the Lilac Festival, to name a few.

They also have the Warkworth Lilac Festival Photo Contest, which Clint and I both entered.  You can enter 3 photos of anything and/or 2 photos of lilacs.  Entry fee is $30.  I did not have any lilac photos so I put in 3 of my other ones.  We went to the festival this year as one of my photos was selected as one of the 25 finalists.   The link for the Photo Contest (above) has a slide show of all  the photos entered, winners and finalists.
