Relax with live local music from around the province, a glass* with friends, a tasting plate of local delicacies and the sun setting over the best view in the city.

A Taste of Home is an exclusive new evening experience of Newfoundland and Labrador’s signature cultural landmark, The Rooms, developed just for Come Home Year. Each ticket includes a tasting plate of local delicacies, a drink (alcholic or non), a takeaway memento box and an admission voucher to return during regular opening hours to view current exhibitions.

Music by Sherry Ryan. Sherry has been winning hearts across the country as one of Newfoundland’s finest singer-songwriters. Her highly anticipated fourth album, Wreckhouse, takes its name from her song ‘Stop The Trains’; a gem of a tune voted best song in the province by The 2018 People’s Choice Awards. She was also awarded 2018 Music NL Female Artist of the Year.

Tickets are $60 per person (10% discount for Rooms Members)
