Pack your headlamps and your climbing skins…
If you’re a ski enthusiast – particularly if you love ski touring – you won’t want to miss out on a climb up Mont Orford this Saturday, from 6:30pm – 9pm. Don’t forget to bring a headlamp and your climbing skins.
Shakespeare in colour
An exhibition at Sherbrooke’s Fine Arts Musuem - Pellan & Shakespeare : 12th Night in Five Acts – showcases the talents of artist Alfred Pellan. On display, are costumes and silkscreens by the painter, as well as archival photographs.
