The Bermuda National Trust [BNT] Christmas Walkabout is set to take place next Friday, December 2 in St George’s.

A spokesperson said, “St. George’s is the place to be on the evening of Friday 2 December to enjoy the magic of the Bermuda National Trust Christmas Walkabout in the World Heritage Site. For over 40 years, this highly anticipated event has signaled the start of the festive season in Bermuda.

“BNT historic homes including Tucker House, The Old Rectory, Bridge House, Buckingham, Reeve Court and Stewart Hall will all be beautifully decorated and open free for the public to enjoy. Join us at the Globe Museum for some Christmas cheer, where you can also browse our Trustworthy Gift Shop.

“Many other buildings and cultural sites in the Old Town will also be open to the public and providing entertainment on the night, including St Peter’s Church, the St George’s Historical Society’s Mitchell House, Stella Maris Church, State House and more.

“Musicians and dancers of all ages will entertain the crowds from the stage at King’s Square, with Town Crier E Michael Jones acting as MC for the evening.

“Local shops will be open on the night, so you can get some Christmas shopping done too! When you need refreshment, there are several local eateries and bars to choose from or you can head over to Ordnance Island where there will be a food court featuring Four Star Pizza, Ashley’s Lemonade, De Graff’s food truck, Funnelicious and Casa Acores. Goslings will have a bar with festive cocktails on Ordnance Island and in the Globe Hotel garden, and an opportunity for wine tastings at various stations in the town.

“The Bermuda National Trust could not hold this event without the generous support of our sponsors HSBC, Goslings, Butterfield & Vallis, the Department of Youth, Sport & Culture and Belco, as well as the support of the Corporation of St. George’s. We also appreciate the cooperation of our tenants. Last and not least, we are hugely grateful to the many community groups and individuals who so kindly volunteer their time to make the evening a success.
