The Shaw Festival produces and presents the work of George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) and playwrights writing anywhere in the world during, or about, the era of Shaw’s lifetime.  In the Spirit of George Bernard Shaw, the Shaw Festival provokes the mind and stirs the soul through a theatre experience so compelling that, year after year, ever broadening groups of artists, audiences and supporters are drawn to our work in Niagara-on-the-Lake and beyond. The Shaw produces 10 to 12 plays each season, with approximately 800 performances in our four theatres, to audiences totaling about 300,000 people.

The Shaw Boxing event provides a unique opportunity to interact with clients and network with colleagues in the business community, during the reception and throughout the evening. Hosted at the venerable Fairmont Royal York, guests enjoy first class hospitality throughout the evening including a gourmet dinner, wine, after-dinner spirits, and refreshments during the boxing matches. The three bouts are professionally sanctioned fights, providing the chance to enjoy high-quality sporting action close to their table. The guest list includes 700+ CEOs and senior executives from the ranks of Canada’s leading companies including audit, tax & advisory, major banks, law, investment, private equity, and real estate.
