  • Master and Commander: a Weekend in Nelson's Navy

    09/22/2017 - Etobicoke, ON

    MASTER AND COMMANDER A Weekend in Nelson's Navy at Historic Montgomery's Inn 4709 Dundas West at Islington, Fort York National Historic Site, Campbell House Museum and aboard tall ship Playfair September 22-24, 2017 The year is 1800. Standing on the deck of a British warship, you hear the wind snapping her sails and the creak of her wooden hull. Then -- a strange ship is sighted on the horizon, and you're off in hot pursuit! We offer a unique immersive experience: a weekend in the world of the Royal Navy of 200 years ago. We'll learn about every aspect of life both aboard ship and on shore, from writing with quill pens to eating the foods sailors knew, learning the bosun's pipes, tying knots and trying out a few cutlass moves! Includes a cruise aboard a tall ship, antique navigational instruments, an illustrated lecture on Jack Aubrey's ships (both real and fictitious), a ship's carpenter, sea shanties, historical food by firelight, hornpipes, merchants, historical games, demonstrations, hands-on workshops, and much, much more. You can do pay-as-you-go or register for the full weekend. Pre-registration encouraged, and meals must be booked in advance. Please note: on Friday, September 22 we will be at Fort York, aboard Playfair, and at Campbell House Museum during the day; we move to Montgomery's Inn for Friday evening, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
