Midway through its 2015-16 concert series, Errington Hall takes a break and gives its stage over to local talent this Saturday with the annual Errington Christmas Concert.

More than just a music show, the Christmas concert, a long-standing local tradition, features performers in song, skits and all manner of entertainment in a family-friendly format.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m., and coffee and seasonal treats will be available. Admission is by donation.

Country Christmas

Tiger Lily Farm will host its annual Christmas in the Country Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 23-24, in Errington.

The farm will be open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. each day to visit with animals in the barn, take a pony ride or ride on the hay wagon, enjoy a cookie and hot chocolate, and make a door swag to take home. Dress up in the live nativity scene and visit the Winter Wonderland Forest in the indoor arena.

Of course, Santa Claus will be in on the festivities, as well.

Admission is $5.50 per person (season passes not valid for this special event). For more info, call 250-248-2408 or visit www.tigerlilyfarm.ca.

Country opera

The Coombs Country Opera returns with one more pre-Christmas presentation of good, old-time country music Friday from 7-10 p.m. at the Coombs Rodeo Grounds.

The open stage format is open to all entertainers who wish to share their country chops — and fans who want to watch and listen — in a welcoming atmosphere.

Cost for adults is $5. Performing musicians and children are free. For more info, e-mail lsratchford@shaw.ca or visit www.chrco.org.
