EXPLORE LONDON THIS MARCH
In like a lion, out like a lamb. So goes the saying. Regardless of whether March will indeed provide an early respite from all the recent storms, there will be something to do in the City of London this month. Plays, music greatness, and chances to learn something new are all waiting for you this March.
The Tesla Quartet @ Wolf Performance Hall – London Public Library
If you’re looking for something to do on Saturday, March 9 at 8:00 pm, look no further than a riveting performance of classical string pieces by the Tesla Quartet. Lauded as a group with the “superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they play, regardless of era, style or technical demand” (The International Review of Music), the Tesla Quartet has won numerous awards and prizes both nationally and internationally. Visit the Wolf Performance Hall for more details, or purchase tickets online. Tickets are $40.00 for adults.
Jesse Cook @ London Music Hall
Born in Paris to Canadian parents, and having recorded albums in three continents, Flamenco guitarist Jesse Cook’s philosophy is that music brings people together, no matter where they come from or what language they speak.

Kinsmen Fanshawe Sugar Bush Maple Festival (for the whole family)
For the last forty-six years, the Kinsmen and Kinettes of Greater London have invited crowds to the Kinsmen Fanshawe Sugar Bush to celebrate in all things maple. The Kinsmen once again encourage you to dress warmly and take a stroll through their Maple Sugar Bush or take a historical tour on the horse-drawn wagon to learn more about the making of maple syrup. Enjoy mouth-watering pancakes dripping with their own warm maple syrup and know that all proceeds go back to the London Community. They are open each weekend in March and all of March Break from 9 AM – 4 PM. Prices are $3 per adult and $2 per child up to age 12 or $10 per family.
Fences, the theatre play @ Grand Theatre
March can sometimes fool us with occasional warm days, but don’t fret if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Taking in local theatre is a great way to spend those days in March that you would usually spend sitting inside, and where better to go then London’s very own Grand Theatre. Fences is the story of a family in 1950s Pittsburgh dealing with figurative fences they have put up around their own lives, and those they try to tear down. As one of the most acclaimed plays of American theatre, this is one well worth seeing. The show runs March 19 to April 6, and tickets can be purchased online. For more information you can contact the Grand Theatre by phone at 519-672-9030 or by visiting them at their location, 471 Richmond St., London, ON.
