Happy birthday to TOSH

The Old School House arts centre celebrates a century in Qualicum Beach

Taiko drumming was a big part of the celebration to mark the 100th birthday of The Old School House arts centre in Qualicum Beach

Qualicum Beach was bustling with people on the weekend, as a swarm of residents made their way to The Old School House arts centre (TOSH) to celebrate the building’s 100 years of service in the community, first as a school and later in its current role.

Activities included the popular Grand Prix d’Art, an Art in Action art festival as well as entertainment throughout the day on a stage in the parking lot. Magician Floyd Campbell drew some laughs with his short but sweet show and a Taiko drumming concert filled all the seats as members of the recently held workshops showed off their skills. Photographers taking part in the Day in the Life of Qualicum Beach: Qualicum at Play were omnipresent snapping street shots throughout the day. These photos will be juried and displayed at TOSH in February as well as in The News.
