This show is currently planned to go ahead. We are watching the COVID-19 advisories and will keep ticket holders update of any changes. Thank you for your patience.

In May 1945, when Holland was finally freed from Nazi occupation, it was in no small part thanks to Canadian troops. Since then the two countries have had a warm and appreciative relationship, so much so that the Netherlands hosts annual remembrance ceremonies for the thousands of Canadian soldiers that gave their lives for freedom in Holland. There are very few families in Nova Scotia that don’t have a strong connection to the liberation stemming from our ancestors who volunteered.

Over 100 performers from across Nova Scotia will take to the stage to pay tribute to the sacrifices and triumphs Canadians dealt with during this period. There will be a mix of traditional and original music, singers, dancers, pipe bands and the wonderful music of the Truro Concert Band.

All the pomp and ceremony you would expect will fill the evening and end with a grand finale that shouldn’t be missed as we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Holland.
