PHOTOS: Cawston’s Black Cat a showcase of local talent

The event returned from its COVID-19 hiatus as popular as ever

The Black Cat came back, and it came back in style.

The popular event was a monthly staple that started in 2019 before COVID-19 forced it into hiatus.

Last Saturday, Feb. 24, marked the revival of the showcase for local talent of all types, and around 50 people made their way to Cawston Community Hall for it.

The night covered the range of art and human expression, starting with poetry, before moving into music that had people humming and clapping along, to improv comedy and even line dancing.

Unlike the first go around, the show isn’t planned to be every month, but every second month, at least for now.

A date for the next show hasn’t been announced yet, but the low cost of a dollar to join the Black Cat Cafe is well worth price of admission.
