Corktown Christmas Forest

Alison Little tells us of the Corktown Christmas Forest which will be held at the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse at 106 Trinity Street, Toronto on Sunday December 2, 2011. The Schoolhouse will open its doors to families, friends and newcomers for our third-annual “Corktown Christmas Forest” event from 11 am to 5 pm.

They are excited to present the “Forest” in our West Hall – Christmas trees decorated in hand-made Victorian ornaments. Each tree will be sponsored by a local business or group, and donated to the Salvation Army Local 614 of Regent Park following the event.

The schedule will include:

• 12 p.m. Reading of “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” by our own ballerina – Katherine Belrose!

• 1 p.m. Performance by members of the Corktown Chamber Orchestra

• 2 p.m. Reading of “A Visit from St. Nicholas” by Stuart Hughes of Soulpepper Theatre Company

• 3 p.m. Performance by the St. Paul’s Toronto School of Irish Music

• 4 p.m. Reading of “The Steadfast Tin Soldier”

• All day -  Victorian ornament-making demonstrations - try your hand at scrapwork balls, paper fans, cornucopias, sugarplums, stars and pomanders! Cider, coffee, tea and treats for all, and cupcakes baked by Pretty & Sweet will be on offer. Tours of the Schoolhouse will be available all day.

Admission is pay-what-you-can, with children under 10 admitted for free.
