2018 Leith Summer Festival Concerts

The Friends of Leith Church invite you to attend the many events and concerts planned for this year. Proceeds and donations will be used for the continued restoration and maintenance of this ‘Auld Kirk’. We have purposely retained our traditional low-ticket prices in order to build an audience for the Leith Summer Festival, which continues to feature some of the finest artists performing today in Canada.

From CEILIDH to CHRISTMAS we present a menu of services, performances and activities that will provide a wonderful introduction to the outstanding acoustics and beauty of our heritage church and its surroundings.

Visitors leave tributes to Tom. We welcome ideas on how to store/display these items.

Tributes left at Tom Thomson’s gravesite.  Friends of Leith would be interested in hearing your ideas on what to do with these collections.
