What to do this Weekend in New West | Oct 6-8, 2017

Check out a play or two, cruise to the Cranberry Festival & shop the fall collections at New West Craft this long weekend!



Vagabond Players: Little Shop of Horrors

Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm

Meek and mild flower shop assistant Seymour Krelborn has stumbled across a peculiar new plant species, which he names after his stunning but vulnerable crush Audrey. The plant, Audrey Two, has plans that are far greater than Seymour can imagine as it grows into a bad-tempered, foul-mouthed carnivore who offers fame, fortune, the girl he loves, and an escape from skid row in exchange for feeding its growing appetite for BLOOD.  Mixing Motown, B-movies, and The American Dream, Little Shop of Horrors is the gleefully twisted, out-of-this-world cult classic hit musical that also spawned the 1986 film starring Steve Martin and Rick Moranis.

New West Craft

October 7 | 11AM – 4PM

New West Craft is a handmade market hosted by the Arts Council of New West. New West Craft aims to provide a welcoming environment for crafters, artisans and makers to share their work with the community. New West Craft takes place on the first and third Saturday of every month at the River Market.

Fort Langley Cruise for the Cranberry Festival with Paddlewheeler Riverboat Tours

October 7 | 9:30AM – 5PM

The lush Coast Mountain Range provides a breathtaking canvas as you travel, with fascinating narration to the Birthplace of British Columbia. A unique view of Barnston Island and the Golden Ears Peaks are only a few of the highlights on your way.

We’ll travel under the latest addition to cross the Fraser River “The Golden Ears Bridge” as well as the newly constructed “Port Mann Bridge” the widest bridge in the world. Enjoy leisurely eating your delicious lunch which is included before we dock in Fort Langley.

There will be ample time to visit The Fort Langley Historic Site of Canada, browse the boutiques & antique shops in Gasoline Alley or just stroll around the quaint village soaking up the old time ambiance.

When you return to the paddlewheeler you can enjoy your relaxing return voyage to New Westminster.

Moms the Word 3

October 8 | 7:30PM – 9:30PM

From the world-renowned creative team behind the Mom’s the Word series comes a new chapter in their stories of family and fracas. Their kids are grown, their marriages have “evolved,” and their bodies are backfiring. Life doesn’t get any prettier, but it never strays far from ludicrous or poignant as the moms continue to mine their personal history for every embarrassing detail. Filled with insights, secrets, and ribald humour, this brand-new show from the moms you love is both hysterical and deeply touching.
