Up Close ... & Intimate
an exceptional entertainment series

 Here is a whole new era for the Vallican Whole. These are the type of events that in the past, you'd travel to the city to take in, but now you can see them in the beauty and intimacy of the Vallican Whole. These are adult sit-down performance events, with lots of time before & after performances and during intermissions to chat up your friends, visit with the community, and sample some lovely food and drink.

This is only the beginning.

This renewed initiative is in keeping with our commitment to use to Whole to build community, and to keep things local. We are offering these events as a package of three, instead of individual tickets. This gives us the support we need to continue the series, and allows us to include a wide variety of genres, sourced from near and far.




The Vallican Whole Community Choir accepts new members in September and January.

Practices are on Sundays from 3-5 pm in fall/winter, , and then in the spring 4-6 pm.


FLiKS (Film Lovers In the Kootenays) has been screening films at the Whole since 2004.

What better way to spend a Friday night, than sharing a exceptional, unique , inspiring film

For decades, First Nations, conservationists, backcountry skiers and snowboarders have fought a proposed large-scale ski resort deep in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia. After 24 years of opposition, what more will it take to keep Jumbo wild for good?

Four cowboys, 16 unbroken mustangs, and the wild west... The journey of quieting some mustangs and taking a wee trip...from the Mexican border to Creston BC border.

On an epic 3,000-mile journey through the most pristine backcountry of the American West, four friends rode horseback across an almost contiguous stretch of unspoiled public lands, border to border, from Mexico to Canada.

whole perspectives


A series of informative and interactive sessions on important issues of our time .

Continuing a long tradition, the Whole is hosting a series of informative and interactive sessions on topics of interest to our community. In this series we present multifaceted perspectives on a wide range of issues and encourage lively discussion. Our hope is that people will leave these sessions energized and better informed and will be excited to share what they have learned with their friends and family.


  We are working on a very interesting panel discussion as a follow-up to the "Cannabis and Local Economic Development"presentation in December of 2016.
