Victoria Hall Volunteers

The Victoria Hall Volunteers are a group of women dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the heritage and historical aspects of Cobourg’s Victoria Hall.  We achieve this mandate through advocacy, activities, tours, education and fundraising events.

More on who we are and what we do

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.
