The chef behind last year’s popular Roma at Three Rivers, Fall Flavour’s event, renowned, Chef Joel Short, will be creating a mouth-watering meal to celebrate the Scottish Canadian heritage preserved at the Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead.
The Homestead Players, Melissa Mullen and Rob MacLean will portray the Master’s Wife and the Master. They will present a number of vignettes from The Master’s Wife: A Theatrical Celebration. This successful play was presented to full-house audiences during the summer months at the Orwell Corner Historic Village. We will also enjoy visits from a number of the local Women’s Institute Members who will share stories of long ago in Orwell. Our Master of Ceremonies, well-known, storyteller, Alan Buchanan will ensure that our event will run smoothly and everyone will have an enjoyable evening.
