Heritage Players

New tour explores 60 years of Confederation Centre history

The Confederation Centre’s Heritage Players

Confederation Centre of the Arts is offering historic walking tours of downtown Charlottetown this summer. From the Island’s first inhabitants to Confederation and beyond, these tours offer a captivating blend of Canadian history, cultural landmarks, intriguing facts, architectural gems, and more.

The tours are led by the Heritage Players, a troupe of enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides who dress in period costumes to make history come alive in an entertaining and memorable way. 

Three tours are on offer this summer. The Historic Great George Tour, available in English or French, explores PEI’s role in shaping Canadian history. A classic Ghost Tour led by a mysterious gravedigger is full of spooky tales of Charlottetown’s dark, mysterious, and haunted past. New this year is a Behind the Scenes Tour that dives into the storied 60-year history of Confederation Centre of the Arts. Guests can learn about the Centre’s origins and evolution and visit backstage to explore decades of theatre memorabilia. 

Tours are approximately 75 minutes. For the full schedule and to book tickets, visit confederationcentre.com or contact the Centre’s box office at 1-800-565-0278.
