Entertaining in the Canadas in the late 18th and early 19th centuries always included a ball in January to celebrate the Queen’s Birthday. Our event echoes this tradition with a day-long celebration of music, food and dance. This year, Queen Charlotte honours His Majesty’s senior service–the Royal Navy and the Provincial Marine in the Canadas. Plan on attending the whole day for $95.00 and save $15! The full day includes an afternoon English Country dance workshop, a presentation by noted naval historian Victor Suthren; a rum tasting; an elegant Georgian-style buffet supper; and an evening ball with live musicians. Beginners are welcome. No partners required. Costumes are encouraged, but not necessary.
$95.00 (all day), $65.00 (dinner/ball only), $25.00 (dance workshop & speaker) or $20.00 (rum tasting). Pre-registration required.
