Thriving on Arts & Festivities

The Canning, Agricultural, Horticultural & Recreational Society is thriving with a whole lot of arts and festivities leading up to this year’s Make Smoking History Canning Show. CAHRS members and the community are keeping active at the Cannington Exhibition Centre & Showgrounds, despite the reconstruction and on-going ground works surrounding them. The Society look forward to opening the new Showgrounds for the Canning Show in November – but for now it’s ‘Act-Belong-Commit Arts & Events Program’ offers more than enough activities for the south-eastern metropolitan area. This comes with great acknowledgment to the funding of Healthway.
The Society look forward to the return of its Choir and Theatre members this week, for another semester of musical and dramaturgical fun after it’s successful sell-out performance of ‘the Sound of Music’. Choir and Theatre members meet Thursday nights and are always looking for keen new members to join in on theatrical antics. Our annual ‘Get Ready for the Show’ workshops are set for Sunday 24 July, and promise to offer a great afternoon of fun. This year’s workshops will focus on scrapbooking, card-Making, origami and a painting class – places are limited and participants are encouraged to register quickly. Finally, Saturday 30 July is set to kick off our yearly ‘Showtime Talent Quest’, with three heats taking place August, September and October, and the big finale scheduled for the Main Stage at the 2016 Make Smoking History Canning Show.
