I saw a solo artist and again the next night with a rock band. I really liked the theatre. Good seating in every seat. Rows are spaced enough that you can see over the persons head easily in front of you. Nice rounded front stage....More

Attended a 3 day seminar here and was very pleased with the facility. The doors/windows can all be raised like a garage door so as to allow cool air to circulate through the room. The acoustics were good and the lighting excellent.

This is a very nice community centre that often hosts local events and productions, . It is outside of Victoria and you would need a car to get there.

we were here for the annual art show (which should not be missed) but I was also impressed by such a great all purpose building in this relatively small town. The building hosts meeting rooms, yoga classes, and a large auditorium that can be used...More

Attended a performance of The Nylons (sold out) and every seat had a great view and acoustics. The art show in the lobby was lovely. Lots of free parking and conveniently located near the highway.

COGWA had their Feast of Tabernacles services at the Mary Winspear Centre for 2016. Great service by staff and would like to see it held there again.
