Come early and join us on Smith Street directly in front of the theatre and in the adjacent Odeon Park at “The Burt Backyard”, a new gathering space that will activate during select events throughout the summer.
With the name inspired by Burton Cummings’ 1976 song Your Backyard, The Burt Backyard offers a casual neighbourhood space where you can gather with friends, ticket-holding or not, for food, beverages and entertainment. This licensed area will feature bar service, food offerings and live music on an outdoor stage.
Supported by the City of Winnipeg, the West End BIZ, and the Exchange BIZ, and with the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ as a funding partner, The Burt Backyard is open to both ticket holders and the general public to enjoy Winnipeg’s long summer days in a historic district of Winnipeg’s downtown. The Burt Backyard is considered an extension of the theatre proper allowing ticket holders to flow between the theatre and The Burt Backyard throughout the evening.
The Burt Backyard will be available on select event days and is weather dependent.
