Cultural and Educational Series
Westminster Canterbury Richmond’s Cultural and Educational Series allows residents and guests to experience a wide variety of engaging and entertaining performances, lectures, excursions and more. This collection of events and activities showcases how each department is connected and works together to put on a show for all audiences. In this season’s playbill, residents are able to enjoy musical acts such as The Johnny Cash Musical, Glenn Miller Orchestra and The Nutcracker. The productions held in our Sara Belle November Theater spark interest with all ages because of the spectrum of diverse personalities that travel from all over to broadcast their talents.
Captivating discussions often arise after listening to the speakers during the WCR Forum Lecture Series. Guest speakers are chosen by a committee of residents, with the most recent topics including artificial intelligence and The Virginia Museum of History and Culture. An important value that is shared at Westminster Canterbury is respecting and learning about all types of faiths. The Pastoral Care department holds lectures and events for everyone to appreciate, ranging from talks about Living with Loss, to movies with a message, as well as fun activities and services in the Cochrane Commons and Montague Chapel.
There is never a dull moment, both on and off campus, because of the endless list of events and excursions available to residents. Many of these target needs, like the Farmer’s Market and Mobile DMV, while others celebrate holidays and the cultural arts. Mark your calendars for our Unique Boutique Fall Craft Fair on November 1 and 2. This annual fair invites outside vendors, residents and staff to sell and purchase a variety of holiday crafts, food and art.
