Memory Lane In The News

Memory Lane and Watson's World on CTV News at 5

We were so excited when CTV contacted us to do the story about our digital museum content this summer and how we are continuing to engage with visitors and our community during the pandemic. Did you catch the story when it aired? Watson was an absolute star! 

In case you missed it, here is the link to the news clip.

Christmas Dinner Tickets - November 20th, 21st, & 22nd

Some of you have told us that you can't imagine a Christmas season without our Memory Lane Christmas dinners. After much consultation with NS Public Health, we are proud to say that we have found a way to move ahead with the dinners, with strict Covid-19 regulations in place.

Tables will be appropriately distanced from each other, increased sanitization protocols are in place, and all guests must wear a mask while entering and exiting the Cookhouse, and when going to and from washrooms. (Masks may be removed only once guests are seated at their tables.) The Musical Friends concert will not take place in the church this year, but we have plans to make this a special evening, with our decorations, music and an opportunity to stroll through the Village decorated with Christmas lights before coming into the Cookhouse.

As usual, we started receiving booking inquiries for the dinners early in 2020, (pre-Covid-19) and have contacted all those early birds and booked them in. We still have limited seating left for Friday, November 20th and for Sunday, November 22nd. (Saturday is sold out.) We anticipate that the seating we have left will go quickly, so please contact us by email at if you are interested in booking a table. We will take bookings in the order that we receive them by email. As staffing is limited at this time of year, please do not call the office to book. Bookings will be available by table only as we can no longer combine several smaller reservations at the same table. 

Due to reducing seating capacity to accommodate social distancing, and the increased labour to prepare three dinners, the costs have increased. Tables are available in the following configurations:

8 person table: $320 (Current Availability: 1 for Friday night and 3 for Sunday night)
10 person table: $400 (Current Availability: 1 for Friday night and 1 for Sunday night)

A Few Important Details 
Tables must be paid in full at the time of reservation confirmation. There will be no refunds unless the entire event is cancelled by public health regulations. The person in charge of your group reservation is required to submit a bar order one week before the event (a bar menu will be circulated and we will call you to collect your drink order), along with the names of those in the party (for contact tracing). Additional drinks can be ordered through your server at the dinner and payment can be made at the end of the evening.

With regards to the adjustments we have had to make in 2020, we appreciate your patience and understanding. In the end, we are just so pleased to be able to keep our Christmas dinner tradition alive. Thank you for your support!
