Posted on

This is the perfect start to your Christmas celebrations. Experience this unique Victorian setting and enjoy a day packed full of family festive fun. Santa will be in attendance to welcome children to his grotto with gifts for all. Traditional music, food and activities will make this a festive day to remember.

Step back in time and explore this magical Victorian setting. Visitors after dark can enjoy the site by lantern. The Ruddington Community Choir, the Maids of Clifton and a traditional barrel organ player will be in attendance to provide a day of festive family entertainments. Roasted chestnuts and hot crumpets will help keep you warm and refreshments will be available in the Chapel. Demonstrators will be on hand to bring the crafts of framework knitting to life and visitors are welcome to have a go on the circular knitting machines. As expected, the museum’s Textile Emporium offers a wide range of Christmas gifts for all ages and budgets.

Paul Baker, the museum manager, said “this will be our biggest and best Christmas event yet with a wide variety of activities and entertainments throughout the day. The museum’s Victorian buildings offer the ideal setting and our volunteers will be in period dress to make the experience all the more authentic.”
