PROGRAMME, September 18th – 20th, 2015

“I would have all the arts draw together, recover their ancient association, the painter painting what the poet has written, the musician setting the poet’s words to simple airs, that the horse-man and the engine-driver may sing at their work”. (W. B. Yeats)

In the spirit of Yeats’ remark, welcome to the fourth annual Fort Langley Celebration of the Arts. This year’s programme presents an exciting group of performers which includes gifted local artists as well performers of international stature. With the support and co-operation of our Fort Langley Community Improvement Society, in the words of Elizabeth Wride, a member of our Celebration Committee ‘….we are able to do so in a Community Hall which serves as the living room of our Village’. This year we are also fortunate in having the partnering support of our Langley Community Music School as well as of the Langley Arts Council; this is an indication of our growth and significance as a community event. This year’s roster includes talented young performers from our Langley Community Music School as well as a talented performer enrolled in the Faculty of Music at the Langley Campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Performances will feature the spoken word as well as music and, inevitably, will lead to dancing. So please join us in our Village, a jewel of the Fraser Valley, a child of the Fraser River, as we celebrate the Arts.

    Hello. We are revamping our website (launches in mid-January) and are putting some significant effort into the Fort Langley Events calendar. Would you be able to give me any information (or even just the dates/times for now is ok) for your 2016 event so I can get it on our calendar?

    Hello. I look after the Fort Langley Community Association website ( and we have an events calendar that we do our best to keep up to date with any events in and around Fort Langley for visitors or prospective visitors to use. Would you mind letting me know what your dates will be for your Celebration of the Arts in Fort Langley for 2016 and any other details and I would be happy to add them to our events calendar.
