Sidney, BC is an absolute paradise. Perched on the waters surrounding Vancouver Island, the beach is never far away, and neither is the lush scenery of Vancouver Island! However, our little community isn’t just natural beauty – we also have great cultural events to check out!

A large part of that rich cultural experience is the Mary Winspear Centre, which attracts world-class performers from around BC, across Canada and the globe. Here are some events taking place this January that make it worthwhile to visit Sidney by the sea!

Valdy: One of Canada’s favourite folk artists, Valdy conjures the spirit of the 1960s in every performance. His well-worn voice is smooth and warm, and he knows how to tell a great story in word and in song. He will be performing at the Mary Winspear Centre on January 10. 

Matilda: The Musical: One of Roald Dahl’s most beloved stories, Matilda is about a precocious, smart young girl with a good heart who is beseiged by nasty adults, but she finds a way to turn the tables by using her telekinetic powers to teach these mean old adults a thing or two about being polite. The book is riotously funny and relatable, and the Broadway-musical based on the book is a fantastic stage show loved by both the young and the old. See this entertaining production on January 24!

The Original Wailers: Bob Marley redefined the sound of reggae in the 1960s and 1970s, and he did it with his band The Wailers. While Marley was absolutely a genius, there was no way he could have done it without his stalwart band who helped shape the future of music – they’re still around and they still sound great. All these legendary musicians will take to the stage of the Mary Winspear Centre on January 30 at 7:30 pm.

Sidney is beautiful at any time of the year. If you’re planning on visiting for the breathtaking attractions of Vancouver Island or for the cultural events taking place at wonderful venues such as the Mary Winspear Centre, you'll be looking for supremely comfortable accommodations. Book a room at the Best Western Plus Emerald Isle for a premier stay experience! You'll be impressed by perks and features such as premium quality bedding, large flatscreen TV with cable, fitness centre, an onsite restaurant and so much more.
