After the great run on Sunday and the Thanksgiving gobbler on Monday, it’s just as well we’re slowing down, to catch our breaths and relax a bit before gearing up for the next major event. But there are still a lot of things going on around town, and we invite you to book with us, the Admiral Inn (& Suites) to rest your weary head after a hectic day around town.
The Early Music Society of the Islands is presenting a mixed media performance of “Orpheus and the Animals” where the musicians interpret the animals that Utrecht Academy of the Arts students bring to life with their animation. Oct. 16 at Alix Goolden Hall.
If you’re into nocturnal animals and you want to start feeling as though it’s Hallowe’en, then you’re invited to join naturalists from the CRD to learn about those mysterious and (not really very) scary (once you get to know them) mammals, the bats. Meet at the nature centre off Munn Road. All ages are welcome. Also October 16, 1:30 on.
If early music isn’t your thing, then the same night you might want to mosey on over to the Viscount Hanger at MacDonald Park Road in Sidney BC and enjoy some of the wild, wild west come back to life. The Sidney Pier Hotel and Spa is the ‘Wild West Roadshow’ will feature internationally acclaimed and Juno award winning musician Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo. The event will also include live entertainment all evening, a gourmet BBQ dinner and a complimentary drink. Replete with a country music saloon, dancing girls and gamblin’ men, all net proceeds will go towards the purchase of new surgical equipment for the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation.
Dance Victoria is proud to present Pacific Northwest Ballet from Seattle, coming to Victoria’s Royal Theatre on Oct 15 and 16. Don’t miss this incredible evening of dance – 5 master choreographers’ works presented in one evening! Balanchine, Nahco Duato, Jiri Kilian, and a performance by Grammy winning violinist Mary Rowell. If you like ballet – modern or classic, you won’t want to miss this evening.
Whether it’s the Wild West you’re after, a nature hike, rest from the strenuous weekend just past or wishing you’d never given up those dance lessons (I know I’m in that group!), you’ll want to stay with us, in one of our rooms, or splurge a little and take one of our suites. Spotlessly clean, bright and attractive, the Admiral can be your home away from home whether it’s for a night or a month. If you’re here on buisness, talk to us as well, we have meeting rooms and can arrange room service if you’d like to meet in your suite. Cheap but definitely not shoddy, we’re looking foward to welcoming you at the Admiral!
