Put on your garden party best and come celebrate this Official State Ceremony celebration! When Bermuda’s capital moved to the City of Hamilton in 1815, Bermuda’s oldest surviving building and the island's first House of Parliament and Courthouse, the State House, became the headquarters of the Freemasons Lodge after striking a deal, with the then-governor to pay one peppercorn a year for rent!
To commemorate this agreement, your Peppercorn Package includes:
- Special Reserved seating to view the ceremony, Bermuda Regiment and Scottish Bagpipers
- Access to the exclusive garden party featuring local live entertainment
- Light refreshments
- Mix and mingle with Bermuda Freemasons and local dignitaries
- Private tour of the State House
This event is full of pomp, circumstance and old British tradition, so ladies don't forget your hats with recommended cocktail attire.
