Or A King’s Christmas is back for its fifth year. Under the direction of Grammy-winning musician Paul Halley, the King’s College Chapel Choir will perform a beautiful blend of carols, from Gregorian chant to Arvo Pärt, including some traditional Nova Scotian tunes. Prize-winning short story writer Alexander MacLeod returns as narrator for a second year and will intersperse the music with seasonal readings by Atlantic Canadian writers.

Come and see Santa and have your childs picture taken and sent via email to you at the Treehouse Christmas Party! There will also be music, crafts, facepainting and cookie decorating. Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas! 3. Have you seen Elf yet? One of the most beloved Hollywood films of the past decade makes its musical Canadian debut at Neptune!
