Long a cult favourite of music fans and critics, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society mixes joy and nostalgia to imagine a bygone world of childhood friends, motorbike riders, wicked witches, and flying cats. An innocent, hidden place full of the everday magic of small towns and green spaces. A refuge and escape. Like a walk in the woods.
If you aren’t familiar with the album, give it a listen. You’ll be glad you did.
Craft beer, wine, coffee, and tea will be available. There will also be a silent auction with items including vinyl copies of The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society, Bruce Trail swag, a Bruce Trail waterfall hike, signed books by local authors, Baffin hiking boots, and bird watching gear.
