The Taghum Hall Presents series is thrilled to welcome four talented performers to the stage on Saturday, November 25 at 7:30 pm. An Evening of Theatrical Storytelling is one of several events and opportunities happening at Taghum Hall in November and December.

Michael Graham is known for his spellbinding performances, such as his one-man play recounting the life of 100-year-old clown Scaramouche Jones. Nelson audiences have seen Pat Henman on stage in Steel Magnolias, The Gin Game, and more. Pat’s memoir Beyond the Legal Limit has toured extensively as a stage adaptation. Kozmo Sammartino has held numerous stage roles, from Count Dracula to Ebeneezer Scrooge. He is co-producer and co-star in the play Souvenir with Rachel DeShon, touring in 2023 – 2024. And Bessie Wapp has developed, directed, and performed in many original theatre works, including Matchmaker on the Roof and Hello, I Must Be Going. She conducts the Taghum Hall Women’s Choir and performs with the Bill Lynch Trio and Klezmeridian.

“I fully expect to laugh and cry through these performances,” says co-coordinator Heather Haake. “Taghum Hall Presents never disappoints.” Tickets are available at Otter Books, Taghum Shell, and online at

Also in the calendar: Friday, November 24 from 3:30 – 6:30 pm  kids 7 – 12 get crafty in a workshop called Santa’s Elves. Cards, ornaments, and gifts are on the menu—as well as dinner!—all for a $40 registration fee.

Coming up on the flip of the calendar is Taghum Hall’s Christmas Market on Saturday, December 2 from 10am – 2pm. More than 30 vendors will offer unique gifts and goodies, with live entertainment and a chili lunch to make everything warm and jolly.

On Sunday, December 17 from 1 – 3:30 pm, A Taghum Hall Country Christmas is all about twinkly family fun. Seasonal music, fun activities, and Taghum Youth Presents “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” are all part of this festive event. A “kids only” market is a great place for kids to find highly affordable gifts for family and friends. Rumour has it that the Jolly Old Elf himself will make an appearance!

Drop-in Table Tennis on Mondays from 5 – 7 pm and drop-in Watercolour (and other mediums) on Tuesdays from 10 am – noon round out the fun at Taghum Hall, where it’s all about building community—one event at a time. For more information go to
