Community Fundraising Event
For the past fourteen years, we have been involved in staging a historical tour of the Brandon Cemetery. Many people do not fully realize the number of famous (and infamous) people buried there. It is our intention to educate the participants through entertainment to raise money for a local charity. Local actors from Assiniboine Theatre Company portray the roles of these remarkable “residents” of the cemetery, and share personal biographical details with participants.
This "lively" two hour interactive walking tour provides an opportunity for visitors to take a step back in time and to "meet" the colourful and inspiring individuals who have helped in shaping the Brandon we know today. The characters of Brandon's past will literally come alive to tell their tales and offer some juicy bits of gossip to those plucky participants who venture through their hallowed resting grounds.
The date and time of this event will be released in May of 2021.
