Bull Run Restaurant MWB Music Without Borders

The Bull Run Restaurant

215 Great Rd, Shirley, MA 01464
Capacity 300

The Bull Run has been a Tavern for centuries and in Alison Tocci’s family since the 1940‘s. For six decades, Alison’s brother and their father before him ran the family business. Alison and her husband George took the reins on New Year’s Eve of 2009 and now employ 74 people including a wide array of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and even a few outlaws. Their mission is simple: buy local; treat the staff and the talent like gold; support the local events and institutions that truly create community; and bring world-class entertainment to this rustic setting in north central Massachusetts. The intimate atmosphere at Bull Run is one-of-a-kind and we sincerely believe the Tavern is lucky for love; maybe that’s why so many betrothals, weddings, and special anniversaries take place here as the decades roll by. The tired and thirsty traveler has been stopping along this Great Road since 1740. Alison and George invite you to continue the tradition. Step back in time and relax in the authentic atmosphere of Bull Run.

Capacity 500

Tibbits Opera House, built in 1882, is the second oldest operating theatre in Michigan.

The fact it survives and continues to operate as a theatre servicing southern Michigan and northern Indiana makes it even more rare today and worthy of preserving.

Tibbits Opera House serves as the arts and cultural center of Branch County and the surrounding area. The intimate 499-seat theatre offers nearly-perfect acoustics and great entertainment year-round. Tibbits produces a professional summer theatre program which USA Today called one of “10 great places to see the lights way off Broadway.”  Through the rest of the year Tibbits presents professional touring artists, children’s programs, art exhibits as well as community arts and cultural events.
