A Victorian Christmas Evening @ Weston Museum
Dec 15 @ 17:00 – 19:30

Get into the traditional festive spirit by joining us for a special evening opening. Soak up the wonderful Victorian Christmas atmosphere of the museum lit up by twinkling lights around our big tree, whilst under the covered starlight of our glass courtyard ceiling.

Have a little nibble of our Christmas menu, enjoy a warming mulled drink and listen to some traditional Christmas carols. We will also have lots of stocking fillers and quirky gifts that you won’t find on the high street for sale in our shop. There will be special one-off offers for this evening only, so you can grab a bargain in your Christmas shopping!

No need to book and the museum is free entry, Merry Christmas everyone!

A Victorian Christmas Celebration @ Weston Museum
Dec 16 @ 10:00 – 17:00

At Weston Museum, we have a strong Victorian heritage and the Victorians knew how to do Christmas. With a big tree, traditional decorations, the sound of carols and the smell of something mulled in the air! If you would like something a bit different from the hectic, modern side of the festive season, then come and join us for a Victorian Christmas experience!

See Father Christmas!

Father Christmas will be making a special appearance to reward children who take part in our special Christmas trail with a gift from under our big tree. Father Christmas will be joining his elves on the trails that start at 11am and then at 3pm. Spaces for this are limited, so we advise booking in advance. You can book and pay for a space by either popping in to the museum or by phoning our main number (01934 621028) from Monday 13th November. The cost of £2.50 per child includes both the trail activity and the special gift from Father Christmas at the end.

Make some Christmas crafts

We will also have family friendly Christmas crafts in our Learning Space for children to make their own Christmas cards and tree decorations. There will be different crafts for both younger and slightly older children. We will also be joined by the lovely duo from Rainbow Sands again, so children can make some Christmas themed sand art. The craft activities do not need to be pre-booked, you can drop in between 11am and 3pm. Set prices apply for some crafts, whereas others are for a donation.

Enjoy some festive food and buy some gorgeous gifts

The cafe will have a special Christmas menu throughout December and our shop will feature a wide range of gifts for you to find something quirky and different from the rest of the high street.

 

Can’t make these dates? Maybe you could pop along to our special evening opening on Friday 15th December, when we will have carols and special one-off offers in our shop! Head back to the ‘What’s On’ calendar for more details.
