Winnipeg's Cultural City Hall announces new home !
Winnipeg's Cultural City Hall has just announced the location of their new home: 123 Princess Street ! (Here's the full announcement.)
Winnipeg's Cultural City Hall, of course, is the new, co-op reincarnation of Aqua Books currently located in the Norris Block on Garry Street.The new location will boast a lot more entertainment, and a lot fewer books !
On March 3 Winnipeg's Cultural City Hall is hosting a "Hello 123" fundraiser at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People at the Forks featuring the likes of Fred Penner, the Royal Canadian Navy band, comedian Al Rae and more.
The building is also known as the Miller & Richards block (or the Western Elevator Lofts.) In today's Winnipeg Downtown Places post I take a look back at the history of the building.
