Victorian Christmas

The volunteers and trustees of Towcester Museum warmly invite you to our magical Victorian-themed Christmas celebration, which will be held on Saturday 9th December from 10am - 4pm. Entry to the Victorian Christmas as well as ‘The Towcester Story’ and the ‘Old Railway Exhibition’ will be FREE all day! You will be merrily welcomed into the museum by the wonderful Towcester Studio Band who will be playing Christmas carols. The museum will be decorated traditionally and our volunteers dressed beautifully in period costume, so that you can experience the charm of a Victorian Christmas. We will be serving mulled wine, wassail punch and our locally brewed heritage ales as well as a selection of festive treats, including mince pies, sugar plums and our Christmas fudge. Our strict headmistress will be running a craft workshop for children to make Victorian-style Christmas crackers or tree decorations in our Victorian classroom, complete with chalkboards and authentic finger stocks. Christmas soaps and candles made using Victorian methods as well interesting books, yummy treats and children’s gifts will be available to buy from our shop, so that you can find the perfect Christmas present.
