According to Wikipedia, Fredericton is an important cultural, artistic, and educational centre for the province of New Brunswick, Canada, home to two universities, the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design, and cultural institutions such as the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the York Sunbury Museum, and The Playhouse—a performing arts venue. The city hosts the annual Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival, attracting regional and international jazz, blues, rock, and world artists. Fredericton is also known for its indie rock scene.

What Wikipedia does not mention is that Fredericton is the venue for the next week of the World Senior and World Mixed Doubles Championships in which England's men - Michael Sutherland (playing in his 10th World Seniors - a record for men and only surpassed by Liz Matthews of New Zealand who has played 11 times in the Senior Women's), Tommy Campbell, John Summers, Charles Jackson and Alastair Fyfe,  and England's Mixed Doubles pair of Anna Fowler and Ben Fowler are participating.

Press Releases from the World Curling Federation tell us that:

"Curling fans around the world can follow live coverage of the Mixed Doubles  via the World Curling Federation’s YouTube Channel which will be embedded onto the homepage of the event website"

Looking at the schedule on the website it does not look as though any of England's games are scheduled though there are some gaps later in the week when they will choose games depending on the state of play in the various sections - so there may be a chance then.

For the Seniors the message is:

"For more information about the event, visit:"

It will be a busy week for the teams with the Seniors having 9 round robin games and the MD having 8.
