Greetings from Florida

Williamstown has officially seen snow this week! Winter has arrived and it’s getting cold! So I’ve heard anyways, I’m currently sitting in the 80-degree weather of Florida J avoiding winter as long as I can.

For those of you who are planning your trips to the Berkshires this week, here’s what’s going on and what you can expect.

Weather wise, it is currently 30 degrees in Williamstown and will be fluctuating all week, but probably won’t be any warmer than 50 degrees, so be sure to pack accordingly, gloves, hats, winter coats, (snow suits and parkas, ha, ha!) are all acceptable this week. But probably a little too soon for skis and snowboards, maybe next week! ;)

Some events going on this week (there’s A LOT!) include:

Enjoy a display of art in indoor galleries, retail and hospitality businesses along North Street and South Street corridor. This is an ongoing event that will continue until December 27th so there are lots of opportunities for you and your family to enjoy arts and activities in downtown Pittsfield, MA.

Enjoy great food in a beautiful atmosphere of the Thornewood Inn and Restaurant in Great Barrington, MA. Enjoy Richard Dagenais on the piano and David Thorne on vocals every Friday and Saturday evening until January 1st. Also until January 1st, every first Thursday of the month you can see Wanda Houston and friends with some swingin’ jazz over a delightful dinner.

November 13th- MIDWEEKMUSIC at Chapin Hall, stage. 12:15pm

November 13th- Visiting Artists Momenta Quartet at Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall, 8pm

November 15th- Williams Concert and Chamber Choirs at Thompson Memorial Chapel, 8pm

November 16th- Williams Vocal Jazz Ensemble at Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall, 4pm

All at Williams College in Williamstown, MA and only about a 5 minute drive from The 1896 House!

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the National Theatre presents an exciting evening of live theatre, directed by Nicolas Hytner on November 14th. The celebration includes rare glimpses from the archive, featuring many of the original actors who have performed on the National’s stages over the past five decades! This all takes place at The Clark in Williamstown, MA.

It’s a busy week here in the Berkshires with all sorts of fun events for you and the family to enjoy while you’re here! Book your rooms with us here at The 1896 House for some early fun in the snow! Pack accordingly and maybe bring a sled or two J
