We’re halfway through another chilly work week and what better way to shake off the seasonal slumps than attending a local event in Victoria!

From hockey games featuring local rivalries to hilarious improv shows, here are five things to do in and around Victoria this Wednesday, December 14th:

Vancouver Giants vs Victoria Royals

After two recent wins against the Kamloops Blazers and Kelowna Rockets, the Royals will face off against their mainland rivals, the Vancouver Giants in what’s expected to be an exciting game.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with the puck dropping at 7:05 p.m.

Held with Laveen Gammie

This workshop will be a textile focused workshop that covers the basics of punch needling, and the process of tufting.

Road Trip Improv Show

The road. That special place between places. The place where we cease to be inhabitants, and instead become travellers. Where we are no longer burdened with practicality and are finally able to ask deep questions.

The road is where we all become philosophers and poets. So buckle up, and come watch Dave Morris and Byron Kjeldsen in an improv show that takes place entirely in a car.

Like any road trip, there will be a lively conversation, awkward silence, some jokes, and, of course, snacks.

  • Where: Intrepid Theatre, 1609 Blanshard Street
  • When: Wednesday, December 14th, 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
