CABBAGETOWN’S WINCHESTER STREET CHURCH AND THEATRE DATES BACK TO 1891

Former home to St. Enoch’s Presbyterian Church it’s one of the few bold examples of Romanesque Revivals in Toronto – with round arches over windows and doors, deep entry points, thick masonry walls, brick or stone facades, and rounded towers. The architects, Gordon and Halliwell, designed nearly 200 commercial, institutional, ecclesiastical and residential buildings over Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. Best of all today is the church, now a longtime home to The Toronto Dance Theatre. The company’s name is known far and wide – from New York’s Joyce Theatre, a six-city tour of India, a sold-out season at London’s Royal Opera House, performances at the Canada Dance Festival in Ottawa and the Festival TransAmériques in Montreal, as well as numerous performances in Toronto and across Canada . . . . . . . <Information from the PSN newspaper>
