Peppercorn Ceremony to be held on Monday
St George’s will celebrate the Annual Peppercorn Ceremony on Monday with traditional flair.
A Corporation of St George spokesman said: “We welcome all to come out and enjoy the Bermuda Regiment Band with its pomp and pageantry and all of the history that surrounds the event.”
The ceremony features the Freemasons’ Lodge paying its annual rent of a single peppercorn to the Governor for use of the Old State House.
The event dates back to 1816, when the capital of the island was moved from St George’s to Hamilton.
The event is traditionally held on the Wednesday closest to St George’s Day, April 23, but this year the event has been moved to St George’s Day itself.
The ceremony is scheduled to take place at 11am in King’s Square.
