A Night at the Tavern:
Gamer, Jongoulier, Baladeer: the Cheat, Liar and Thief in 18th Century Entertainments
Dinner is Thursday, May 2nd, 2019
Join us for an evening of dinner and entertainments 18th century style! It all starts at the Springhouse Tavern at 6:30. Through the evening, meet King George and Queen Sophia Charlotte as they prepare to view the backcountry on our free weekend event ‘Under the Crown’. Lift a toast with Dr. Franklin as he espouses the need for freedom. Put on your best shoes as Dance Master
Cheney leads a few common dances after dessert. Through it all you will be guided by our very own ‘cheat, liar and thief’ Eric Scites as he takes you on a journey of 18th century entertainments popular in the time. From the gambler’s ‘spreading the broads’ to the magician’s ‘thimblerigging’ all the way to some of the ballad highlights of ‘penny operas’ so loved in the 18th century! Food, drink, singing, dancing, gaming-what else could you POSSIBLY NEED to make your life complete? Space is limited, so call Mistress Lynn for tickets today!
As always the reservations are limited. The cost of the evening is $50.00 per person. Contact Lynn@colonialtimes.us or 803-215-0837 for reservations.
