From 3pm-6pm, the Purcell’s Cove Neighborhood Committee is hosting a program of music, literary readings and visual art at oceanside Purcell’s Cove Pottery. Festive readings by Catherine Banks, Stephanie Domet, Andy Fillmore and Paige Hare promise to entertain and inspire, and music by Kev Corbett will fill the room with stories put to song. Come early and take part in the exhibition of visual art by Geoffrey Grantham, Danyele Belliveau and Eva Toth with early music by The Rascals and the sacred songs of St. Vladimir Orthodox Church Choir.
Throughout the weekend (Dec. 11-13), you are invited to take part in the annual Purcell’s Cove Pottery Open Studio & Sale featuring the exquisite pottery of Sally Ravindra. Show your bus transfer on Saturday afternoon and you will save 10% off pottery! See below for Open Studio hours.
Purcell’s Cove is an historic Halifax community, connected to HRM by the #15 bus. In their new transit plan “Moving Forward Together” Halifax Transit aims to cut bus service to this community and offers no transit alternatives for the students, commuters and persons with disabilities who use the #15 bus to get around. Show your support for public transit is by riding the bus to Purcell’s Cove for this festive celebration of music, arts & the #15 bus!
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served, with a reception to follow. Find the event on Facebook by clicking here.
