I highly recommend that everyone that is in the area during the performance check it out. Two years ago we saw the performance very impressive.

Well, Pooh (which is as strong as I can say it here and still not have to triangle myself).... we arrive at Dockyard on June 7. I last saw this in St George's and if you are in Bermuda when this stirring performance is given, make a point to see it... stunning.. IMHO of course

This will work out good for us since our ship is at the Dockyards on Monday 6/6. I assume from the pictures posted that this occurs at night. I believe that Destination Dockyards also occurs on Monday nights. Will Beating Retreat be a part of Destination Dockyard or is it a separate performance?

The pictures I posted were taken in St. George. Market Night is what they call DD there which was always on a Tues. The Beating Retreat was on Wed. night. I may have the days reversed but they were not the same night and it may be different at Dockyard. Just be sure to inquire at the Visitor's Center for the schedule.

Not sure about the discrepancies in the dates but you can take the ferry to Hamilton and you get off right downtown..
