Upcoming Workshops and Entertainment (Issue #65)

By January 22, 2013

Follow me on:

In this issue: go to the circus, a play about golf, the science of sound, tour the canals, walkabout, young guitar players, romantic viola, field photography, archaeology for kids, and jazz in a garden.

This column includes announcements of seminars, workshops, community events, fundraisers and other programs for which there is an admission charge, a donation expected or you are otherwise expected to spend money, such as shopping events. Advance registration is required at some these events, so you might see them listed here weeks before they are scheduled to occur.

If you are looking for programs or activities where there is no charge for admission, you can check my weekly "Free Things To Do" column (it comes out every Monday), or check the monthly calendar of recurring annual events.

Events are presented here in date order.
