Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Victoria Hall Volunteers, together with the Northumberland County Department of Economic Development, Land Use Planning & Tourism will again present "Food, Farms, Tour and Tastings" on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.

The day begins at Victoria Hall where approximately 52 guests will board a bus for a day-long tour of Northumberland County with visits to 5 farms or agriculturally related businesses. The tour will be led by knowledgeable step-on guides and include lunch. Upon return to the Hall the tour will be followed by a "tasting" in the Concert Hall from 5:00 to 7:00 pm where local chefs will present an array of tasty treats made from locally grown products. Tickets for the Tasting will be sold separately. Watch for details at

Formal and Flannel PosterOn December 15, 2017 the Victoria Hall Volunteers hosted An Early Canadian Christmas Evening to raise funds for the preservation of Victoria Hall. The event was sold out and although the weather was cold and snowy, the guests arrived in high spirits. The majority of them chose to dress in either a formal, or period costume, or in flannel.

The volunteers decorated the Concert Hall and the tables to reflect the decor of the 1870's with greenery, cornhusk angels, peg dolls and soldiers, ribbons, crocheted snowflakes and other homespun items.

The delicious appetisers, roast beef dinner with yorkshire pudding, and trifle for dessert was catered by the Buttermilk Cafe and received rave reviews.

Guests were entertained by a broad selection of Christmas Classics provided by the Terry Fox School Choir, the Corktown Fiddlers and the Oriana Singers who put everyone in the holiday spirit.

All in all, this was a very successful evening from the moment the guests were greeted at the front door until the moment they said their good-byes, bundled up against the snow.

The funds raised from this event will be used well and we thank the people who supported us by buying tickets to this Early Canadian Christmas Evening.
