The 2018 series starts Thursday, January 25th and, in addition to eating, drinking and singing, will include intentional discussion of important issues in our city. Here are some dates to put in your calendar and share around:
Doors open at 4:30pm at 19 Trinity Square (that big church/castle behind the Eaton Centre)
4:30-6pm — food, drink & conversation with your friendly bartender and others
6-7pm — Pub Choir *
7-9pm — ongoing bar service and conversation
Lifting Spirits just finished its second edition. Thirty years earlier, almost to the day, The Cowboy Junkies recorded their breakout album, The Trinity Session right here at HT. The sound in our space is amazing and we made good use of it. Pub Choir sang three songs from that album and did three more that were a little easier to wrap our lips around and made the room ring.
Since ancient times, the sun has been an object of fascination. Without it, there is no life on Earth, and it is good to use this moment of the solstice or “sun stand still”, as it is literally translated, to mark changes internal and external in our world.
On December 21 from 8:30 pm-10:30 pm, we will celebrate the longest night of the year with a candle lit labyrinth walk, followed by refreshments and singing inside. Join this family-friendly version of Lifting Spirits as we observe the turning of the year!
