First World War themed concert cancelled

The group is hoping to reschedule the shows for this fall, closer to Remembrance Day.

SIDNEY — Due to low ticket sales, the two performances of Keep the Home Fires Burning scheduled for May 8 and 9 at St. John’s United Church have been cancelled.

Presented by the church and the Ad Hoc Troubadors, the show would have featured songs and stories about the service men and women on the Saanich Peninsula during the First World War.

The group is hoping to reschedule the shows for this fall, closer to Remembrance Day.

Anyone who had already purchased a ticket is welcome to contact the church for a full refund by calling 250-656-3213.
