Real Vancouver Spring Jam 2024


7:00 PM


Russian Hall, 600 Campbell Avenue

Spring has arrived and with it our annual May event featuring six incredible writers representing a range of styles and approaches to writing, performance, and publishing.

We’re back at one of our favourite venues, the magnificent Russian Hall. Located along a convenient bus route in beautiful and historic Strathcona neighbourhood of east Vancouver, we’ll be in the big auditorium on the main floor.

The Russian Hall is an accessible venue. From their website: There is a wheelchair ramp to the main entrance, a wheelchair lift to access the Downstairs Hall, and a wheelchair accessible washroom by the Downstairs Hall. Find out more here.

Luppolo Brewing and Strathcona Beer Company are nearby and the Heatley, one of our favourite east Vancouver venues, is just a few blocks away.
