We invite you join us for our annual general meeting to celebrate another successful year for the Firehall Arts Centre. We will kick off proceedings with the meeting at 6:30pm sharp, accompanied by light refreshments.
All members have voting rights at the AGM – if you need to join or renew, you can do so in person at the door (membership is just $10, Season Passes includes membership). What we do genuinely wouldn’t be possible without you, our biggest supporters, so a huge thanks from all of us at the Firehall. We look forward to seeing you at the AGM!
IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
Located in a heritage fire station built in 1906, the Firehall Arts Centre produces a season of eclectic theatre, dance and interdisciplinary performances and acts as a host to visual arts exhibitions in its intimate gallery/lounge. Each year the Centre hosts over two hundred performances bringing audiences into the heart of the city to enjoy artistic works, view art works in the gallery and sip a beverage on the enclosed courtyard.
The building that is now home to the Firehall Arts Centre served as a fire hall – the first motorized fire hall in North America – until 1975. Minor renovations to turn the building into a theatre were undertaken at that time but it was not until February 25, 1982, that the building opened as the Firehall Theatre. Later the decision was taken to change the name to the Firehall Arts Centre to better reflect all of the different arts activities that are housed in the bustling centre and that we are today!
