    4th Annual Costumed Tea Market Square Day at the Warner House is this Saturday June 10, 2017, 12:00-3:00. Captain Archibald and his Lady Sarah Wentworth Macpheadris invite you to join them for an afternoon entertainment celebrating the ongoing 300th anniversary of the construction of their grand house.   To commemorate this event, we have set the principal rooms at a gastronomic moment in history—evening dining from 1720s-1910s —business repasts of the early and late 18th century.   To enhance your experience, garments laden with stories—such as ladies shoes and dresses, and even Jonathan Warner’s plum-red coat and vest—will be laid out in the rooms in anticipation of its wearer’s return.   At 2 PM, members of the Royal Scottish Country Dancers will perform simple dances for your edification and ask you to join them.   There will be light refreshments and croquet. Rumor has it that several guests have created new fashions for this event. Please join us for this special year with the house appointed to entertain you as it has for countless past guests.   Please join us for this annual fete as we open our doors to the public to enjoy the 1st floor of the house and the gardens. Admission is free.

Saturday, Aug. 6, 12-4 p.m.  Rain date is Aug. 7, 12-4 p.m. Join the Warner House during its 300th season for an afternoon of Celtic music!  The Celtic Festival celebrates the first owner of the house, Capt. Archibald Macpheadris. A Scots-Irish immigrant, Macpheadris was in Portsmouth about 1712, and he had the impressive Warner House built for him, c. 1716.  In 1709, Macpheadris joined the Scots Charitable Society in Boston, the oldest charitable society in the Western Hemisphere.  Representatives from the Society will be on hand to describe the Scottish presence in colonial New England.  Receive a special discount for a Macpheadris-era inspired brew at Earth Eagle Brewings. Cost is $10 members and $15 non-members.  Children 12 and under are free.  Food will be available to purchase from RiRa Irish Pub.
