We know there are no more chances. It is not going away and today is the time to get it right in dealing with the climate crisis. Our world will live with it for the rest of our history, just as we have lived with the twentieth century legacy of our nuclear war. Our shared duty now, as one people, is to protect and repair our Earth, even as we prepare ourselves for its future unknown.
The film Climate Change and the Human Prospect documents the vision created at the Climate Change and the Human Prospect: A Thinkers Retreat held at the Thinkers Lodge in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.
In the compelling setting of the Thinkers Lodge where scientists and scholars from all over the world have stayed and tackled the world’s most pressing issues through the power of dialogue, Climate Change and the Human Prospect captures the thoughts, emotions and ideas of these Thinkers – scientists, economists, municipal councillors, planners, artists, community activists, First Nations and Eastern wisdom representatives and others – as they articulate global warming’s cascading impact on small, rural and coastal communities and focus on actionable, locally-oriented and forward-motion climate change plans.

Everything I’ve ever done has led me to here. To Wonderland, a collection of songs that are an invitation to connect, an invitation to sing, and an invitation to myself to dig deeper than ever before.” ~ Coco Love Alcorn
“Coco is the ultimate musical spark plug… an electrical connector through which the creative energy flows. In my 30 years of touring around the world, I have never seen another performer able to bring people together like Coco does.” – James Keelaghan – Artist Director, Summerfolk and renowned Canadian singer/ songwriter

About the Nutcracker
Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.
The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.
It’s the Second Annual Benefit Concert for the Annapolis Food Bank with Paul O’Brien and members of his musical his family. There will also be some other special musical guests.
Last year’s event was a gorgeous concert of contemporary celtic-folk-pop with lush family harmonies. But more than that, it raised several thousands of dollars (and many boxes of food) for the Food Bank. It’s a night that will put you in the spirit of the season.
Admission by freewill donation to the Foodbank of cash or non-perishable food.
Mark the date on your calendar and stay tuned for details.
- Cheese and Charcuterie Board: House-made meats, pickles, crackers, and croustini with some great local cheeses.
- House-made Haggis: Mashed potatoes, turnip (Neeps & Tatties), carrots with a whisky onion gravy.
- Bread Pudding with toffee sauce.
- Tamdhu 10 YO – This is a Speyside Malt that possesses more colour than you would expect from a 10 year old single malt. (The age statement reflects the youngest whiskey in the bottle, so there may be some older whisky in the blend). The malt was aged 10 years exclusively in Sherry casks, so expect some significant fruit and woodiness. The nose is complex and the palate is wonderfully sweet and smooth.
- Craigellachie 13 YO – Another Speyside Malt, Craigellachie is considered a traditionally made Single Malt using traditional equipment, producing a whisky that is a bit of a departure from a typical Speyside Malt. Craigellachie is viscous and complex with explosive fruit and a hint of smoke. Very few single malt expressions have been released by this distillery, so get ready for a real treat.
The event will take place at the NEW EVENT SPACE at Fort View Golf Course. Tickets are available through King’s Theatre.
TICKETS are $60 each (or $30 without the scotch-tasting)
This is a fundraiser for King’s Theatre.
