Feed their brains this Christmas

As you do your holiday shopping, keep in mind that there are a number of really fantastic gifts that you will not find at any shopping mall.


Whether it’s tickets to a Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra performance, or a membership to the Glenbow Museum, giving an opportunity to learn and support Calgary’s arts and culture is a double win. Here are a few options you might want to consider for your family and friends. If you’re lucky, they might take you with them!


At the Glenbow Museum, you will find a combination of museum, art gallery, library and archives all under one roof.  Whether you’re looking to gift an individual, or an entire family, there are a number of great membership options.  Their “Museum Explorer” membership also includes reciprocal membership benefits at over 650 selected museums in North America.  For more details check here.


The Lunchbox Theatre is a fun way to break up a monotonous work day, and also a great start to date night.


Their “one-act plays” are usually very entertaining light-hearted comedies and/or musicals.  Find out more about their holiday offerings here.


If you know someone that’s a fan of multidisciplinary live art, then a holiday package from the Theatre Junction Grand might be the ticket.

With a number of fantastic shows coming up, including Boom, Major Barbara, The Mountaintop, and Mary Poppins, Theatre Calgary tickets would brighten up anybody’s Christmas.

“Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.” Albert Camus

It truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
