Join Revolutionary Spaces at Old South Meeting House for the return of the reenactment of the Meeting of the Body of the People! Meet iconic Bostonians whose vigorous debate led to the destruction of tea in 1773, as well as other personalities whose contributions shaped colonial Boston. Experience this moment in time in the room where it happened!

The largest indoor gathering space in colonial Boston, the Old South Meeting House was the site of key meetings that led to American independence. On December 16, 1773, more than 5,000 people—over a quarter of Boston’s population—gathered to denounce the unfair practices of the distant parliament.

Doors open at 5:00 PM for a pop-up tea shop at Old South’s museum store. Come early and meet the Ladies of Boston and other colonial characters you might recognize to learn about what life was like leading up to the Revolution. Ticket holders can enjoy tastes of Revolutionary Spaces’ tea and snag their own box for a special price. Exclusive tea tasting hosted by Revolutionary Spaces’ member community and The Tea Can Company!

In special appreciation of our member community, all Revolutionary Spaces members will also receive one complimentary barrel mug and SAVE 40% off regular retail prices on all tea sold in the museum store during the night of the event.

Tickets to the Meeting of the Body of the People include access to both of Revolutionary Spaces’ sites, the Old State House and Old South Meeting House, from Friday, December 16th through Sunday, December 18th. (a $15 value)
