Event Description

The film is tells the history of Craigdarroch, while setting it in the context of Victoria’s local and regional history. Framing the immigration of the Dunsmuirs to Vancouver Island from Scotland, the developments that led up to the Castle’s construction and the subsequent events that shaped its many uses will help tell a more complete story about not only Craigdarroch, but the city of Victoria itself.

Coinciding with the city’s 150th anniversary and the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, the release of this documentary is timely in highlighting the relevance of the Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society. With no dedicated civic museum in Victoria, the film will address a small portion of that need and provide valuable insights into the important role The Castle Society plays in preserving and sharing our local history.

We invite members and the general public for a documentary screening and self-guided tour of the Castle.
