Special Events for Conference Attendees

Monday, 18 July

Conference Reception at The Rooms
The Rooms is Labrador's largest public cultural space. The Rooms site itself is of deep historical significance. Almost 250 years before The Rooms rose on the landscape, this was the site of Fort Townshend. The great star-shaped citadel, one of the largest British fortifications in North America at the time, was built to defend Britain's fishing interests. With the withdrawal of the imperial garrison in 1870, the site became the home of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and, later, the St. John's Fire Department. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by the Four Seasons String Quartet.

Tuesday, 19 July

Reception by Lt. Governor at Government House (tickets are limited)
-- This event is now closed --
The Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador, The Honourable John C. Crosbie, will host a special welcome reception for conference attendees. The Lieutenant Governor is the Queen's representative in the Province and we are indeed most fortunate and thrilled at the prospect of being welcomed to the Province by His Honour.  Light refreshments will include sandwiches, cakes / breads and tea and coffee.  For more information about the role of the Lieutenant Governor and the important history of the Government House,  visit: http://www.gov.nl.ca/

Tuesday, 19 July

Visit to Cabot Tower and Marconi Museum

Cabot Tower was built in 1897 to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the discovery of Newfoundland. It also now commemorates Guglielmo Marconi's reception here in 1901 of the first transatlantic radio telegraphy signal, transmitted over a distance of 2700 km (1700 mi.) from Poldhu in England. In the tower are exhibitions on the history of Signal Hill and the history of communications (with a special section on Marconi). From the top there is a panoramic view of the city and the coast as far as Cape Spear - the most easterly point of North America.

Tuesday, 20 July
 1900h – 2200h

Conference Reception at The Rooms
The Spirit of Newfoundland is made up of professionally trained vocalists who flaunt their Newfoundland heritage by singing passionate, vibrant and harmony- filled Newfoundland songs. Through comedy, quick wit, stage choreography and original musical arrangements, they deliver a unique expression of the province's culture and traditions. The group has been performing for twelve years, delighting Queens, Prime Ministers, Presidents and tens of thousands of loyal fans. Their musical style spans the broad Gulf between Celtic and Broadway - from exciting come-all-ye songs to hauntingly gorgeous ballads. The company is primarily involved in dinner and show productions, having established itself successfully in St. John's and toured across Newfoundland and Canada to enthusiastic audiences. The name of the company embraces its objective: the development of productions that celebrate and enhance the rich spirit, culture and talent of Newfoundland and Labrador.
