Explore the newly refurbished rooms, each decorated traditionally for Christmas. There will be fun craft workshops running between 10am and 3pm where you can make a jam jar lantern, Christmas cards and pine cone robin decorations to take home for your own Christmas tree. There will also be games such as Pin the Tail on the Donkey and stirring the Christmas pudding, as well as fruit punch and mince pies in front of the roaring Victorian range.

The Museum will remain open the following week from Tuesday 13th December until Saturday 17th December between 10am and 4pm, and remain open Tuesday 20st and Wednesday 21st before closing for the festive holiday.
