April showers bring May flowers...

May 1st, 2019

April showers bring May flowers and downtown Brantford will be in full bloom this

month! Checking out some of the new shops and restaurants should be on your list

of things to do. All the restaurant and shop owners are eager to meet you and serve

you! There is always something new to discover in Downtown Brantford. Be sure to

check out our website for new restaurants, shopping and services.

The Sanderson Centre is featuring many performances in May including “Galaxy of

Stars - Music of the Big Bands", a dazzling showcase of your favourite legendary

Swing Era songs, perfectly recreated by the renowned 14-member Galaxy Orchestra

under the musical direction and virtuosic wizardry of Canada’s King of the Clarinet,

Ross Wooldridge! Next month you can catch Denielle Bassels, Indie-Swing

chanteuse Denielle Bassels hails from Toronto ON. Her original music whimsically

weaves a caravan of influences from her childhood and travels abroad from folk and

blues, to Parisian jazz manouche and swing. In 2017 Denielle released her much

anticipated album What About Wool Wishbags which has been described as “Ella

Fitzgerald sipping tea on a rollercoaster with the Mad Hatter”. Denielle’s voice is as

pure and rich as her performance style. She will immerse you in her tales. There’s

never a shortage of entertainment in Downtown Brantford!

There are lots of activities at the Brantford Public Library this month including Baby &

Me, Drop-In Youth Cafe, Family Drop In, Stop Smoking Workshop, Little Picassos,

Science of SuperDogs, crafting classes and many lifestyle seminars. Be sure to visit

their website for all the details!
