Wednesday, 27 June 2018, 11:15:00 AM

Mary Webb Centre Nearing Completion of New Addition


One of our areas concert venues, the Mary Webb Centre in Highgate recently underwent some major renovations and those renovations are nearing completion. Ground breaking ceremonies were held in October of 2016 for the new addition.Mary Webb Centre Ridgetown Ont. We are very fortunate in this area  to have this special venue as well as the Capitol Theatre, both known to be  favorite venues for professionals to perform. Formerly a United Church dating back to 1918, the Centre opened as a concert venue six years ago run by volunteers. Many Nationally Known Performers have chosen to appear there because of its intimate atmosphere, acoustics and enthusiastic audiences that greet their shows. The centre is unique with its rural style welcome at intermission, often snacks baked by the volunteers and the community art gallery located in the basement where visitors can purchase works from local artists. The centre still acts as a community centre featuring activities such as teas and exercise classes.It has become an example of this small communities resilience, population 338, and a lasting symbol of growth.

 The 2200 sq. ft. addition to the west of the existing structure will consist of a modern entrance and exit, an elevator, washrooms, an office and a storage space. The Campaign has received support from private individuals, local business' and government grants, one of which was $249,000 from the Canadian Heritage Society. The new addition will upgrade the centre but maintain the integrity of the concert venue-pew seating for 250 people. The raised stage and a signature stained glass dome in the roof will remain.

 For more information on the fundraising campaign visit or call Marg Eberle at 519-678-3289. Let's help to maintain this great Chatham-Kent Venue, another plus for our community.Show your support in the coming months as the new 2018-2019 Season schedule will soon be announced.
