The Richmond Regional Heritage Fair is an annual two-day event presented by the Richmond Museum, showcasing history projects created by Richmond students and offers unique, enriching activities that inspire a deeper appreciation for and curiosity about Canada’s past.

This year, the Richmond Art Gallery is presenting a live performance of Omnis Temporalis to open the 2nd day of the Fair.  Omnis Temporalis is a multiform project that draws together the cartoon work of Canadian cartoonist, Seth, with contemporary classical music and performance by Vancouver-based composer, Mark Haney.  This free performance tells the story of Seth’s graphic novella George Sprott: 1894-1975 through dialogue and music supported by an ensemble of characters, a trio of alto/bass flute, cello and double bass and Richard Newman as George Sprott. Costumes are designed by Diane Park.

Free admission.  Everyone welcome to attend.
