Brent and Sarah’s Comedy Magic Show (a non-stop laugh riot from beginning to end)
Saturday, June 4, 2022 3 and 7 p.m.
Brent and Sarah’s Comedy Magic Show combines magic, music, comedy and interactive audience participation in a way that feels more like a two-person variety show than a traditional magic act. It’s what you get when you pair together two magicians with skill and talent that don’t take themselves too seriously.
This dynamic duo are a husband and wife team of magicians with a unique and hilarious approach to magic. Unlike traditional magic shows that feature a male magician and a female assistant, this entertaining couple has brought magic into the 21st century with a thrilling two-person show that can’t be seen anywhere else. The show is sure to amaze and impress, but it is Brent and Sarah’s hilarious personalities and on-stage chemistry that keep audiences raving!

JUNE 9 - Tea & History: The Nip 'n Tuck Railway

Lynde HouseA History of the Port Whitby, Port Perry & Lindsay Railway with local historian and author Paul Arculus
At first, the “Nip ‘n Tuck” may seem to have all the stereotypical characteristics of any small railway line. Looking deeper, its story is a complex blend of bribery, corruption, intrigue and tragedy, involving all the pathos, drama and excitement of
well-written fiction… including a shootout and an unsolved murder!

JUNE 16 - Tea Leaf Readings

Lynde House

Have your tea leaves read by Julie Ditta.
A tea leaf reading is a personal and effective way to connect to the heart and soul’s desire for a happier, healthier, more prosperous and fulfilling life. Pictures and symbols formed by tea leaves offer answers to questions about career, relationships, and finances, as well as about loved ones who are here or who have passed over. Messages are healing, meaningful, validating and offer direction regarding personal and spiritual growth.
DID YOU KNOW? Tea Leaf Readings were extremely popular in the Victorian Era!

June 18 to Nov 5 ~ Robert McLaughlin Gallery

RMG"True Currency" is an exhibition about indebtedness and exchange. Bringing together works that explore alternative economies, reciprocity, indebtedness, labour, and wellbeing, this show looks at how value is produced through the circulation of goods and ideas. Within our current market economy, competition and accumulation are prioritized above all else, but what is lost through these ways of relating? In a time of precarity, generalized anxiety, and ecological collapse, how do we sustain ourselves? How do we understand the discrepancies between those who profit from extraction and those who feel its effects?
