UMCycle Is Now Open!
on August 24,2017 by jared

We're proud to welcome a great new member to our campus family - the newest service offered by our friends at the University Of Manitoba Student's Union - the amazing UMCycle!

The UMCycle Bike Kiosk is a full-service bike shop at the centre of the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus. We have parts and accessories for sale and do installation, adjustments and overhauls of all systems of the bike (ie: wheels, brakes, shifters, drive train, steering). The shop is accessible with a ramp leading to the automatic main door. Students get a 25% discount on all services.  Be on the look out for special workshops and events coming up throughout the summer and school year!

A community stand with a variety of tools is available when the shop is open. Friday afternoons from 2:30pm – 4:30pm is community stand time where students and community members can do their own bike repair with the help of a mechanic.

Open Monday thru Friday from 10:30 until 1:30PM starting June 26th!

For more information, please contact us at (204)474-8484 or email us at umcycle@umsu.ca!

Notice Of Signal Outtage
on August 21,2017 by jared

On Sunday, August 27th, the University Of Manitoba will be replacing the transformer that failed at the last month, causing a power outtage that shut us down for 3 days at the end of July.

Please be advised that we will be switching our feed over to our transmitter playlist at midnight on the 27th and will be shutting the station down until the work is completed, which is scheduled to be by no later than 6PM on the 27th.

Many of your favorite Sunday programs will be providing us with shows that we will be playing via the transmitter feed, so despite the building being shutdown, the great music you love will roll on!

 

**Update** We are back up and running at full power now - as some of you might be aware, the outage did kill our live streaming services for a couple days, but as of this morning, those are back and in full effect as well.  Thank you for your patience and continued support!

Live Your Life On The Fringe!
on July 15,2017 by jared

As always, UMFM's intrepid theater reporter Justin Olynyk, host of Play It Again (Wednesday nights at 8PM), and his team of reviewers will be in the middle of the action checking out some of the great plays and telling your all about them here!

Thirty years ago, in the summer of 1988, the WINNIPEG FRINGE THEATRE FESTIVAL took its first bow in the Exchange District with five indoor venues, an outdoor stage and 47 performing companies. The festival has grown exponentially over the last quarter century and when the 2017 Fringe kicks off July 19, festival-goers will have the chance to experience the diversity of more than 190 shows from across Canada and around the world.

Comedy, drama, music, improv, dance – there’s something for everyone at the Winnipeg Fringe. With TICKETS starting at $10, it’s inexpensive to take a chance on an unknown play, or pick up tickets to the hot show. Advance tickets are on sale now online or can be picked up in person at Fringe Central (MTC Box Office, 174 Market Ave., 204-942-6537). To see more theatre for less, a FREQUENT FRINGER PASS lets Fringe fans see 7 shows for $63 or 14 shows for $123. PROGRAMS are on sale now at Manitoba Liquor Marts, select Safeway stores, McNally Robinson Booksellers and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.

As an extra added bonus, this year's Fringe will also feature an amazing lineup of fantastic local music at the CUBE in Old Market Square, with shows running daily at noon and 10PM!  This year's diverse lineup features the likes of the Noble Thiefs, Young Pixels, Mulligrub, the Dirty Catfish Brass Band, Romi Mayes, Sebastian Owl, Apollo Suns, the Middle Coast, Mama Cutsworth and more! Guaranteed, there's no better place to spend these hot summer nights, kicking back and enjoying a beverage or two with your friends!

For more information on the 2017 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, including Outdoor Stage and Kids Fringe schedules, please visit us at www.winnipegfringe.com. You can also call the Fringe info line at 204-942-6537.
