Active: The Society Presents: Fencing Lessons

by Edgebloom

“The Society challenged Culturites to a duel of historically epic proportions! On February 15, members of The Society gathered for an evening of swordplay as we were instructed in the elegant sport of fencing by World Champion and Olympic Medalist, Igor Tikhomirov.

The Society was granted exclusive access to host this event in the Crystal Ballroom of The King Edward Hotel (otherwise known in Culturites circle as the Forgotten Ballroom), which hasn’t been open to the public in over 35 years. Complete with spectacular unobstructed views of downtown Toronto and an air of old-world majesty and charm, this was definitely an unforgettable night reminiscent of the grandiose era of the Russian Tsars!”
