Playing the Past: The Officers of the London Garrison and the Theatre Royal

London’s military garrison left a legacy not of war, but of culture — painting the first views of London, organizing balls and steeplechases, and building London’s first theatre, the Theatre Royal. Join Mark Tovey and friends for a richly illustrated history of London’s garrison and its theatre, with theatrical embellishments, and a behind-the-scenes peek at what is involved in re-enacting productions from the past.

Campbell House Museum and the Culinary Historians of Canada Lecture: Food Will Win the War

In this special lecture, presented a few days after Remembrance Day, Ian Mosby will discuss the importance of food and eating to Canadians’ everyday experience of the war on the home front. He will look at some of the different ways in which ordinary Canadians mobilized food to both show their support for the war effort and also to deal with the ever-present reality of rationing and shortages. At the same time, he will explore the contradiction between popular memory of the war as a time of austerity and the reality that, throughout the war years, Canadians on the whole were eating more – and better quality – food, than they ever had before.

Date: Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Location: Campbell House Museum, 160 Queen Street West, Toronto (map)

$12 regular admission; $10 CHC members. Includes war-time refreshments!
