Lesley's Crewe Road Trip - REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!


THE LESLEY’S CREWE ROAD TRIP STORY:  At the 2014 annual Women in Business Conference hosted by Business Cape Breton, author Lesley Crewe was one of the featured speakers. She spoke about the upcoming film Relative Happiness based on one of her books of the same title.

She advised that the movie would be released in March in Halifax and if there was enough interest shown, the movie would be released to other theatres in the Cineplex chain. Immediately the women attending the conference decided that they would go to Halifax as a group to support a fellow Cape Bretoner. It was also decided that traditional and social media would be used to encourage Capers living in the Halifax and area to attend the movie to better the chances of having it shown across the Cineplex system.

A group of women including Lesley and calling themselves “Lesley’s Crewe” have been meeting to organize the trip. Loyal to Cape Breton businesses, the bus is chartered from Carabin’s bus lines; Cambridge Suites in Sydney arranged for a group rate with their sister hotel in Halifax and the Lesley’s Crewe buttons the group will wear at the theatre were made at the Horizon Achievement Centre. The background of the buttons is Cape Breton Tartan.

Halifax Trade and Convention Centre, with Cape Bretoner Scott Ferguson at the helm, came on board with an “After Movie Caper Party” to be held at the 3rd Floor Atrium of the HTCC.  

Join the fun, bring your friends, tell family, friends and contacts in Halifax to come out and support a hilariously funny movie www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXj2fJ6yCQ0 written by a talented and equally funny Cape Breton author.

Relative Happiness plays from Friday, March 20, to Thursday March 26. Lets make sure the theatre is packed for every showing. Capers supporting Capers – that’s what it’s all about !
