No Change in the Weather - A Newfoundland Musical


The show takes place in God’s Back Pocket, where family and friends have gathered together on a wet and foggy night for the wake of their beloved matriarch. It’s a time to revisit with tier past, settle old acores, and try to find a way forward. The family is divided, by the history of Newfoundland, and the troubles which have beset the province for the past fifty years. It’s time to right the wrongs, to laugh, agree, dance and cry, and maybe even fix history. Time to look to the east and wait for the sun to shine through the clouds gain.

Trails in Motion Film Festival



The Ledlenser Trails In Motion Film Tour is an annual international film and content showcase for the community, by the community, bringing a collection of the finest trail and ultra running films to passionate audiences around the world. The Hamilton showing of the 2019 Trails in Motion festival is hosted by Happy Trails Racing ( and will be held at the beautiful and historic Zoetic Theatre, which is licensed and will be serving beer, wine, and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.  The regular theatre concessions will also be available including popcorn, chips, pizza, and snacks.

For more information on the Trails in Motion Film Festival, please check out: TRAILS IN MOTION.

There will also be some prizes to be won.  This is bound to be a fun event to bring like-minded people together.

PLEASE NOTE: There are only 290 tickets available for this event.  This is due to the Fire Code and there are no exceptions.  Thank you for your understanding!

The Films

Trails in Motion features 5 short films and the running time is about 100 minutes. The five films are:

1. On the Corner - Japanese 100-mile runner Kenichi Yamamoto - one of the countries top athletes - has another life as high school teacher, helping to inspire his students to live and explore more. This film is a story of Kenichi's long journey of recovery, self-discovery and the lessons learned from persistence.

2. Running on Empty - The average person walks Corsica’s merciless GR20 trail in two weeks. Ultrarunner Rory Bosio is not average. With guest appearances of duct-taped hiking poles, anti-chafe gloves and local pizza, see what the 118 mile trail looks like in 50 hours.

3. A Few Steps Further - When Kevin Davis first began running, he was overweight and out of shape. He tried, but failed to finish a 1-mile run. Now, years later, he runs 100-mile races. He uses that fitness to support his other passion - backcountry hunting. In 2017, Davis was selected to run the Hardrock 100. Two months later he attempts a backcountry mountain goat hunt in the wilds of Alaska. The film looks at the crossover between endurance sports and hunting, and the need for public lands and wild places to do both.

4. La Barkley Sans Pitie - The Barkley Marathons is, for many, the toughest race in the world. In a remote corner of mountains in Tennessee, between former coal mines and an abandoned high-security prison, Lazarus Lake has been organizing for thirty years this underground event, which is both ultra-trail and Orienteering. A moving course, in the middle of the woods, without a precise path, five loops of about thirty-five kilometers to be completed in less than sixty hours. Since 1987, over 1,000 participants, only fifteen have finished ... "My idea was that only 1% of people can overcome it," says the organizer. Built around Alexis Berg's splendid black and white photos, and co-directed by Aurélien Delfosse, La Barkley Sans Pitié retraces a fiercest 2017 edition. At the start of the last lap, they were only two of the forty registered. And at the end…

5. How to Run 100 Miles - The odds were stacked against Jayson Sime early in life: poverty, homelessness, dyslexia, bullying. But he learned to fight, literally and metaphorically, and battled his way to a successful career as a political organizer. In 2017, he entered his first 100-mile mountain ultramarathon, betting on his lifelong resilience to carry him to the finish line.

Refund Policy:

Please make sure that you are able to attend when you purchase your ticket because there will be absolutely no refunds.  However, you can absolutely sell or give your ticket to a friend if you are unable to attend the event.

An Afternoon with Medium Sherry Gallant

The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences. The struggle with many intense and frightening emotions, including depression, anger, and guilt.  Feeling isolated and alone in your grief, but having someone to lean on can help you through the grieving process.

In this live event, Sherry will validate messages from loved ones who have crossed over to members of the audience and educate them that our loved ones are always with us.

  She creates a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in order to ensure a peaceful and spiritual experience. She continues to encourage her skeptics to not let discomfort prevent them from receiving validation and loving messages from their loved ones who have crossed over.

Sherry brings comfort, hope and closure to people who are grieving the loss of their loved ones.  She continues to help countless people. Having suffered a tremendous amount of grief herself, Sherry understands the emptiness inside.  Her inspiration and motivational communications with the spirit world has truly been unbelievable.

Validating messages to those grieving and helping them find peace is the most rewarding for Sherry.  The closure and comfort her clients find is what keeps Sherry moving forward feeling fulfilled and grateful to have such a special gift.
