Special Events at the Lyceum
Coming Up Next
Back to Hogwarts Sleepover
AGES: 9 TO 14 ● FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3 TO SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4 ● 6:30 PM TO 11:30 AM ● COST: $145 + GST
We’re stock-pilling our Wideye Potion in anticipation of our Back to Hogwarts Sleepover - the first ever in our new location! We’ll keep the fun going for a night as magical as the famous Yule Ball after the Triwizard Tournament.
We’ll make our own flashlight brooms and play night Quidditch (weather permitting), before settling down to watch as many Harry Potter movies as we can before the witching hour descends upon us. A pizza party banquet will fuel our magical adventures, but please be sure to pack your own chocolate frogs or fizzing whizbees, should the need for a snack arise.
Then, it’s time to curl up and dream of Marauders’ Maps and Invisibility Cloaks until morning, when you’ll help prepare and enjoy a breakfast worthy of the Great Hall at Hogwarts.
Parents can come and fetch their bleary-eyed witch or wizard at 11:30 AM.
Hogwarts students are asked to bring their overnight bags, sleeping bags and lots of pillows (names on items, please), because unfortunately, we don’t own one of those tents you can keep in your purse.
We are so excited to put down roots in our new home, 4433 West 10th Avenue — we are sad to say goodbye to the building that has been our home since 2007, but we also know that it is not the address that makes the Lyceum. It is the people.
Come and learn more about us and our new neighbourhood at our an open house in the New Year! Join us at 4433 W 10th Avenue, Vancouver on February 12 from 12:30 to 3:30. There will be games, book giveaways and snacks - don't miss out!
Valentine's Sweet for Your Sweet
AGES: 10+ ● SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12 ● 5:00 PM TO 8:30 PM ● COST: $80 + GST
Make sweets for your sweet with the help of Granny Blake! The secret recipe for Granny Blake’s toffee was brought to Canada more than 150 years ago by Christianne’s great grandmother, Amy Chappel. Amy’s daughter, known as Granny Blake, passed this recipe down and it has been made by their family ever since.
We will stir, cut and wrap, making sure to add a generous helping of love to each batch. We’ll package our treats and each participant can choose a book to complete this Valentine's gift. Don't worry, you'll take home enough to share with all the loves in your life: friends, family and, of course, some for yourself.
If you come to our open house and want to join us for toffee-making as well, there is a generous hour and a half break during which you can check out local eateries, explore the library up the block, or walk over to Trimble Park.
This is an event adults have enjoyed attending with their children in the past, but the choice is yours.
