Enjoy a cozy winter day with friends or family at Cumberland Heritage Village Museum as actors from Vintage Stock Theatre bring the words of local storytellers to life. As you pass from building to building, exploring the 1920s and 30s village and heritage structures, you’ll listen to stories inspired by characters and tales from our community’s history. Then relax near the bonfire with a warm drink and baked goods (available for purchase from the canteen) before visiting the forge to see the blacksmith at work, offering a unique glimpse at a traditional trade.

Featured stories:

Moonlight at Midnight (Foubert House)
The Wind’s Folly (Loyal Orange Lodge)
On Doctor’s Advice (Knox Church)
The Story of the One Room Schoolhouse (Schoolhouse)
The Golden Shovel (Bandstand)
