To mark the 250th anniversary of the campaign, Martin says the event will be re-enacted twice during an encampment being held on Signal Hill the weekend of Aug. 10 to 12.
As well, on the actual date, there will be a special performance of “Ghosts of Signal Hill,” a one-person play told through a character based on a soldier who died during the battle.
“We’re going to do up something special for added production value,” Martin says.
Meanwhile, Torbay is marking the anniversary of Amherst’s landing with a year-long celebration called “Torbay 250.”
This summer’s events include July performances by the Signal Hill Tattoo, an Aug. 4 Great Big Sea concert, and an August pageant called “1762: the Taking of Torbay.”
