Queens County Heritage Annual Tilley Bash

922822_574943279205282_567586240_nIt’s that time of year again when Queens County Heritage kick off their 2013-14 season with the annual Tilley Bash.  This year is the 15th annual event and they’ll celebrate Sir Leonard’s 195th birthday!

Please join Queens County Heritage on Saturday, May 11, 7 p.m. at the Court House in the village of Gagetown.  There’ll be gourmet finger food served buffet-style, a refreshments bar, door prizes and the friendliest bunch of people you’d ever want to party with.

Following the food, a fabulous evening of entertainment will begin, featuring acclaimed New Brunswick musicians Jim Stewart and Bernie Houlahan.  If you’ve ever heard of the group Hal and Tow, you’re in for a treat.  Or perhaps you know of the Marco Polo Suite, that anthology of folk music about the famous ship?  Jim Stewart is the composer!  He and Bernie promise an evening of song, poetry, stories and laughs.

There’s limited seating so get your tickets now!  Reserve them by contacting Queens County Heritage.

We really hope you’ll come.

About frederictonregionmuseum

The Fredericton Region Museum was founded in 1934 by the York-Sunbury Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1932 and now has members from all over North America, however, most are from Central New Brunswick. In 1969 the Museum found permanent headquarters in the Officer's Quarters (571 Queen Street) in the heart of downtown Fredericton. The Society and Museum remain a nonprofit enterprise with a small paid staff and numerous volunteers. They work tirelessly to create informative exhibits, organize programs and events as well as publish a local history periodical The Officers' Quarters. The Fredericton Region Museum is the home of the famous Coleman Frog. He is the 42lb wonder that lived in the Killarney Lake just north of Fredericton about 100 years ago. The Fredericton Region Museum is a gateway into the exciting history and diverse heritage of central New Brunswick. Because central New Brunswick is where the provincial capital is located, and because it served as a meeting place for Aboriginals, Loyalists, Acadian, and other European settlers, the Fredericton Region Museum is an excellent place to start. With over 4000 square feet of exhibit space and a collection of over 30,000 artefacts the museum is a fun and exciting way to look into our past.
