Tuesday, Oct. 11 (6 p.m.) – Presentation: Phantom of Film
This presentation takes a look at some of the scariest films of all time. Horror films have existed for more than a century, with many early movies taking their inspirations from Gothic and horror literature authors such as Edgar Allan Poe (The Raven), Bram Stoker (Dracula) and Mary Shelley (Frankenstein).
Wednesday, Oct. 12 (1 p.m.) – Presentation: Radio Days
This presentation explores the history of radio and how it influenced Canada and Haldimand County. Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi first developed the idea of a radio, or wireless telegraph, in the 1890s and in 1897 received a British patent for the radio. By 1919, the radio boom had begun and, over the next ten years, a vast array of programming choices became available, ushering in what became known as the “Golden Age of Radio.”
Tuesday, Oct. 18 (6 p.m.) – Presentation: Royal Weddings
There’s nothing quite like a royal wedding. The pomp, the splendour, the anticipation of the dress! This presentation takes a look at royal weddings and wedding dresses from history, which all influenced the way we say 'I do' today.
Wednesday, Oct. 19 (1 p.m.) – Tea & Presentation: Ghostly Tales of Haldimand County
Afternoon tea returns to the Heritage Centre. Attendees will enjoy homemade scones, sweet treats and a bottomless cup of tea followed by a presentation detailing some of Haldimand County and the surrounding areas’ most haunted places.
Tuesday, Oct. 25 (6 p.m.) – Ghostly Walking Tour
This annual ghost walk explores the haunted history of Cayuga. The walk will take place rain or shine; if the weather is inclement we will do a virtual walk.
Wednesday, Oct. 26 (1 p.m.) – Presentation: Things That Go Bump in the Night
This presentation explores the history of Halloween and how various cultures played a part in the celebrations.
