Tourism boost for Peppercorn Ceremony
A unique Bermudian event, the annual Peppercorn Ceremony in St George’s, comes with a special twist this month.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority announced that an enhanced VIP package would be included for the April 24 festivities, offering visitors “a cultural experience they can’t get anywhere else”.
Tashae Thompson, the BTA’s produce development manager, said last year nearly sold out, and 2019 would come with “a few additional tweaks”.
The ceremony features the Freemasons’ Lodge paying its annual rent of a single peppercorn to the Governor for use of the Old State House.
Attendance is free, but the VIP package will include:
• Reserved seating to view the ceremony, Royal Bermuda Regiment Band the Freemasons led by Scottish bagpipers;
• Private access to the exclusive garden party featuring local live entertainment;
• Complimentary drinks and refreshments;
• The chance to mix and mingle with Freemasons and other local dignitaries;
• A private tour led by a local Freemason of the State House
