Happy Tuesday, Victoria—it’s looking like it’s going to be nice outside!

Plenty of fantastic events happening as we ease into the workweek, including a play opening at The Belfry Theatre, a career fair and trivia.

In case you forgot, hip-hop icon and actor Ice Cube will be gracing the stage at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre this Tuesday and it’s not too late to buy tickets!

Here’s 5 things to do in and around Victoria on Tuesday, April 23rd:

The Lehman Trilogy

From April 23rd to May 19th, Tony Award-winning play, The Lehman Trilogy, will be taking over the stage in a flurry of intoxicating adventure.

The story takes place in 1844 and follows Heyam, a young man from Bavaria, as he stands on a New York dockside dreaming of a new life.

He is soon joined by Mendel and Mayer, and the Lehman brothers’ journey begins—together navigating the Civil War, the Great Depression, and generations of ethical dilemmas.

Tickets are sold in a pay-what-you-can fashion, starting at $17.85. They’re expected to sell out quickly, so don’t wait too long to snag yours!

  • Where: Belfry Theatre, 1291 Gladstone Avenue
  • When: Runs from April 23rd to May 19th

Ice Cube “Straight Into Canada” Tour

Following the immense success of the first leg, which saw sold-out shows across the country, Ice Cube is set to deliver an electrifying performance at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre this Tuesday!

Joining him as direct support for this epic night of hip hop are BC’s very own Merkules as well as Peter Jackson.

Catch the Pink Moon

The beauty of another full moon is upon us, and this one has such a sweet name to signify spring!

According to NASA, April’s moon is commonly known as the ‘Pink Moon’ in North America, and although it’s not actually pink, it is associated with specific spring blooms—the herb moss pink, also known as creeping phlox, moss phlox or mountain phlox.

Indigenous tribes living across the northeastern side of the US named the Pink Moon after this moss. 

It will reach its peak on Tuesday, April 23rd—set to rise at 8:28 p.m. according to Time and Date Victoria

Maude’s Trivia Night

Widely popular and always worth the trip, Maude’s returns for another Tuesday of epic trivia!

Bring your team and get ready to crank out some wild facts, play along to win prizes, and treat yourself to some of Maude’s delicious beer-battered fries and beer on tap.

Trivia starts at 8 p.m. but make sure to come early — especially if you have a larger table, otherwise you’ll have to come back next week!

No fee to play.
