Victoria is a charming small city, but when it comes to entertainment choices, it lives big! Because of the throngs of tourists looking for fun while on holiday, post secondary students (who are always up for a party!), and the full time residents, including active retirees and younger folk, Victoria possesses a vibrant entertainment scene.
Whether you are looking for the hottest nightclubs, a lounge with a more sophisticated atmosphere or a friendly pub where you can meet your friends for a casual evening, there is no shortage of licensed facilities in the Greater Victoria area. Some venues regularly host live performances of local and touring musicians and groups. Check out http://livevictoria.com/ for info on who’s playing; where, and when!
If live theatre is more to your liking, the Royal Theatre and MacPherson Playhouse, both operated by the Royal MacPherson Theatre Society, offer a diverse calendar of performances – for info see http://www.rmts.bc.ca/ . You can find out what’s playing at The Belfry theatre here: http://www.belfry.bc.ca/ . And last but not least, visit http://langhamcourttheatre.bc.ca/ for what’s on tap at the Langham Court Theatre.
These are just a few ideas, there are so many options that people who are living in Victoria have for entertainment, it’s hard to imagine anyone being unable to find something that interests them –it’s more likely you may have a hard time finding time to see all that you want to see!
