Great Events that Happen Every Year

If you see a special event that piques your interest but can’t make it, click on the event anyway, it might be coming back next year!

Haunted Hotel Dinner & Murder Mystery
Haunted Hotel Dinner & Murder Mystery

Since 1864, The Bateman Hotel has been a place where guests can relax and conjure the days of refined luxury, romantic evenings and glittering nights. The new owner is hosting a soiree in honor of the anniversary of the hotel's reopening a year ago. If you decide to make a reservation for an overnight stay after the party, there are a few guest rooms to avoid due to reports of ill-spirited apparitions, steamy pockets of strange mist causing feelings of dread, sudden drops of temperature, and terrifying voices that echo in the corridors during the wee hours of the morning. Other than that, the old hotel is once again becoming the place to be in the town of Wraith's Cove. The infamous Quinn Bloom is on the VIP guest list and will bring a rare doll collection to the hotel - but don't let the dolls bother you - the rumors about them may not even be true. You wouldn't miss this party for the world. This is where your story begins.

Come join us at Plum Point Lodge as we try to get to the bottom of this murder. The game is afoot! The game, dinner, and drinks are all included. Things kick off at 6pm and you can expect the event to run till 10pm. Hurry as we only have limited slots. Packages with hotel rooms available at the Plum Point Lodge website.

The Annual John W. Jones Museum 2019 Fundraiser 

Featuring Special Presentations of
The Fertile River

A Play by Vincent Terrell Durham
Directed by J. Vaclav Michalec

Performed by the members of Face It! Theatre Company of Binghamton

 

Set in 1958, this compelling drama illuminates the violence of North Carolina’s eugenics program as an African American family struggles with the gathering realization of how the state came to call on them and what it intends for their children. An official visit by the eugenics agent ignites a collision with power, privilege, racism and social oppression.

 

THE ROCKET MAN SHOW – Elton John Musical Tribute
THE ROCKET MAN SHOW – Elton John Musical Tribute

The Rocket Man Show is the #1 Elton John musical tribute. Hand-Picked by Elton John, Rus Anderson was the official body double for his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ world tour videos & photos. The Show matches Elton’s insane energy night after night. Recreating an early concert with gorgeous, colorful & flamboyant costumes actually worn by Elton – including boots, glasses & jumpsuits from 1973, as well as his sparkly tuxedo from 1984! With all the classic young Elton antics, audiences are in for a night of nostalgia, singing, laughing & participation. It is clearly the most authentic Elton John tribute show in the world. Rus Anderson has been officially hired by Elton John himself to re-enact the most memorable moments of his career.

Rus has put his extensive live & theatrical experience to work nightly, performing as a young Elton John in the tribute show ‘Rocket Man’. This has earned him an endorsement from the official Elton John Fan club & praise from many prestigious clients, including The Elton John AIDS Foundation. In the past year alone, The Rocket Man Show has appeared in all four corners of the USA. Rus is keeping the 70’s Elton alive by re-enacting his charisma, vocals, piano playing & costumes – the ones we all know & love!

Rus & his full band of merry crackerjack musicians are the very best in the business. The show is 100% live in both vocals & instrumentation. Absolutely no tracks or lip-syncing. The performance itself is an extremely sincere, intense & visual spectacle of a journey. There are ballads & driving rock songs. Audiences laugh, cry, sing & dance as they recall the highs & lows of Elton’s epic career.

“The next best thing to Elton John” – Tampa Bay Times.

“The Show Was Wonderful”- Mary Mitchell, LATW, The Elton John AIDS Foundation

“A show as extravagant as Elton’s career”- NBC Los Angeles

 

Show Length – 90 minutes plus a 15 minute intermission

UFC Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz

UFC Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz

Get your bets ready and head to the Sportsbook and watch the Welterweight Bout live from Madison Square Garden in New York, NY!

Two of the truest fighters in mixed martial arts will meet in “The World’s Most Famous Arena” on November 2, as Nate Diaz faces Jorge Masvidal in the five-round main event of UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Fan favorites for their no nonsense, take no prisoners style in the Octagon, welterweights Diaz and Masvidal come into this highly-anticipated bout on the heels of recent wins that have them showing prime form. In July, Miami’s Masvidal followed up his knockout of Darren Till with the fastest knockout in UFC history as he finished Ben Askren in five seconds. Not to be outdone, Stockton’s Diaz returned from nearly three years on the sidelines in August with a stellar victory over Anthony Pettis. After the fight, Diaz welcomed a showdown with Masvidal, and “Gamebred” eagerly accepted, setting up a November to remember in the Big Apple. Plus, two of the UFC’s top young stars collide when British standout Darren Till makes his middleweight debut against former Ultimate Fighter winner Kelvin Gastelum.

About the documentary – In the 1970s, the Highwoods String band’s unique blend of musical brilliance, exuberance, sparkling wit, and eclectic repertoire introduced tens of thousands of delighted listeners to traditional old-time music. The Grammy-nominated band traveled extensively, playing major folk festivals across the U.S. and touring in Latin America and Europe, and released three albums on Rounder Records. The band also inspired countless other musicians and their influence on the music can still be heard today. Blending rare performance footage, photographs, sound recordings, and interviews, this colorful film aptly captures the spirit of the time and the joy and excitement generated by the band.

In 1941 Amsterdam, 13-year-old Anne Frank goes into hiding with her family from the Nazis. For the next two years, she never leaves the attic where her family is concealed.

With a multicultural cast, National Players brings the true story of this incredibly insightful young girl to the stage in hopes of inspiring the next generation to stand up for justice rather than sit back in apathy.

Get the Led Out

From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical,  Get The Led Out  (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.

Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band.

GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country. GTLO’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”

A GTLO concert mimics the “light and shade” that are the embodiment of “The Mighty Zep.” Whether it’s the passion and fury with which they deliver the blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, it’s their attention to detail and nuance that makes a Get The Led Out performance a truly awe-inspiring event!

Get the Led Out

From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical,  Get The Led Out  (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.

Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band.

GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country. GTLO’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”

A GTLO concert mimics the “light and shade” that are the embodiment of “The Mighty Zep.” Whether it’s the passion and fury with which they deliver the blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, it’s their attention to detail and nuance that makes a Get The Led Out performance a truly awe-inspiring event!

Ruby Shooz

Thrilling audiences for over 20 years, this group of maniac musicians brings back the great sounds from the 50’s, 60’s, and some newer classics.

Festival appearances verify the demographics as anyone from 8 to 80. Good old rock and roll with a high energy delivery. Although this group does perform in bars and nightclubs, the big stage is where they are most comfortable. They are the greatest entertainment available for festivals, concerts, corporate and other events where the music needs to appeal to the greatest cross section of people. See for yourself!

Taste samples of traditional foods like mincemeat and roasted chestnuts, and see villagers demonstrate a variety of activities, including: candle making, spinning wool, and meat preservation. Activities for all ages and interests will engage visitors in traditional crafts and tasks of the late harvest time. Guests can also make and take home a seasonal craft for a small fee.

 

Visitors can enjoy lunch in the Historic Hosmer’s Inn or find drinks and light fare in the Banquet Center.

 

Admission $10/adult. Children 17 and under and GCV&M members are free! Please note that admission does not include the cost of crafts.
