Christmas in the Home

24 November - 25 November 2018

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Stroll around 26 acres of shops and houses and get a snapshot of  Christmas past.

From  Victorian lavishness to  wartime Christmas on the ration, visitors can enter the homes of the past as characters prepare for the big day.

Step inside a festively decorated Victorian house and take in the sights and smells of Yuletide over a century ago.

See plum-puddings being made the traditional way, and have a go at penning a Christmas card as you take in the wonderful aroma  of fresh wreaths and fragrant pomanders. 

Skip forward to the 1940s and see for yourself what life was like during a wartime Christmas. Listen to nostalgic festive tunes on the wireless, and learn how  thrifty housewives  put together Christmas on the ration, scrimping on the lavish  decorations in favour newspaper chains and an ‘alternative’ Christmas tree. 

Enjoy a classic film in our 1920s Limelight Cinema - watch a Christmas with Mickey Mouse and have a giggle with Laurel & Hardy. To end your day, relax by the fireside in our Bottle & Glass Inn with a nice warm brew or make a toast to the festive season with a mulled wine.
