Like many entertainment venues across the country, the Lester Centre has eased itself back into the business of bringing artists and audiences together over the last twelve months. 

A period which brought some impressive out of town shows to mesh nicely with the local productions that continue to showcase the talents of the North Coast.

But with a year of working their way out of COVID, the year ahead on the entertainment calendar will pick up the pace as the Lester Centre re-boots and brings new paths sounds and visuals ahead for audiences to share in on the journey. 

The theme of the reboot makes for a piece on the Lester Centre blog, as Lester Centre General Manager Chris Armstrong introduces the 2023-24 Calendar of events for the year ahead.

The GM providing for some snapshots of the shows on the schedule that should build interest through the summer and into the fall when the season launches on September 23rd.

Familiar and popular Northwest entertainers such as Saltwater Hank and Alex Cuba, make for part of a energized list which also sees Nationally acclaimed 54-40 come to town.

Shakespeare mixes with Scottish Drag Queens and Glow in the Dark Dinosaurs along with the Ballet of Kelowna.
