“Entertainment Galore during the Summer Months”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Hall in Stanley Bridge PEI dates back to the era of single room class rooms. The Sterling Women's Institute acquired the building and have restored ,modernized, and taken care of it.

During the summer months (June thru the end of September) it is the home to musical concerts, aka Kitchen Parties or Ceilidhs six nights a week. Different groups on different nights. Our favourite is Saturday night when the RIchard Wood Trio is one stage.

The shows start at 7:30 pm and last until 9:30 or so. Seating capacity is 150 and Islanders have a tradition of showing up early. If you want to sit up front, or if you want to get in at all, you need to be there when the doors open at 7 pm. To be on the safe side, be a few minutes earlier than that.

“Ross family ceilidh”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

From beginning to end this ceilidh was a high energy event accented by astounding talent for
singing, dancing and best of all, musicianship. Guitar, fiddle and keyboards were played
equally well. If you are looking for a ceilidh to start or continue your musical experiences on the island, look no further than the Ross Family and their ceilidh at the Stanley Bridge Hall. We're glad we got in on their last ceilidh in Stanley Bridge for this season.

“Wonderful ceilidhs”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We enjoyed the Ross Family performance so much that we went again the next evening and enjoyed that group just as much (don't recall the name but main entertainers surname was Gallant). Would highly recommend anyone staying in PEI to make the trip over to Stanley Bridge any night of the week for exceptional Maritime entertainment. However, most of the shows are ending for the season at various times in September but begin again in May.
