Experience history during this once-in-a-lifetime event. There are several events and activities planned for the 200th anniversary.
The Lundy's Lane Historical Society will be holding their commemorative service at 7:30 p.m. Attendees to this event are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to the event.
A participatory event will start at 8:30 p.m. from two points in the city. With starting points approximately 2.5 km (1.5 miles) from the battlefield, participants will walk through the streets and converge on the Battlefield at dusk, following the old Portage Road like the combatants on that horrendous night 200 years ago. Once there, a unique experience will overtake you, where you will be involved in the remembrance of the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812. Next Company Theatre will provide us with an immersive performance that puts you at the center of the action and leave you with an experience that will allow you to remember war and the peace that followed.
Full details and registration for this event will be available shortly.
The event will take place on the former Battlefield School field - access via Drummond Hill Cemetery and Lundy's Lane
