Down With Demon Rum! Stories and Songs of Prohibition on PEI

This is exciting! A weekly lighthearted summer musical at The Haviland Club about rum running on PEI, presented each Sunday evening in July and August. Doors open at 5, the show starts at 5:30, and dinner is served shortly after.

Enjoy songs, stories, humour and a fine Maritime dinner of local fish cakes, beans, and strawberry shortcake. Tales and music are suitable for all ages and families are welcome.

And what better venue than the historical Haviland Club! Built in 1869, the Haviland Club has been a social club since 1942, when officers of the Canadian Services purchased the building as a private place to gather during Prohibition, which ended in PEI in 1948. (Coincidence? Hardly!) The Club’s history will be provided to those interested, tours may be arranged, and the Club taproom will offer a full range of entirely legal beverages.

Each week our wonderful sponsor, Nessya of Nessya’s Gems and Jewels at 64 Queen Street in Charlottetown, will donate a wearable piece of art which some lucky guest will win. So come be an Islander for the evening (Island guests, please show the way). Make new friends, laugh, sing a little and enjoy a feed.

The show and meal are only $27. That’s like getting a meal out for free!

The Haviland Club is a not-for-profit organization. Volunteers will help serve, and profits will go to maintenance and upkeep of the heritage building, which is the ultimate purpose of all Club activities.
