Victorian Christmas brought to life in the Cotswolds

Where: Broadway Museum and Art Gallery, High Street, Broadway WR12 7DP

When: Wednesday, December 18, 7pm

From Time to Time presents A Victorian Christmas at Broadway Museum and Art Gallery tomorrow (Wednesday) evening.

From Time to Time is made up of two experienced and knowledgable historical interpreters who have been involved in living history for over 20 years, giving talks for most of that time.

Their love of music means that singing is always included in their talks. Two Victorian ladies, Lady Maud Grey and Miss Eliza Kneebone, will show you how the Victorians enjoyed their Christmases, from St Thomas' Day through to Boxing Day, and all the bits in between!

They will tell you of the many traditions, some of which are still carried on today. There is plenty of chat, a story, and a quiz to jog your memory!

Not forgetting the music - some you will know, some you may not, and some for you to join in with! Their aim is to bring the Victorians to life, so from the moment they walk though the door to the moment they leave, the ladies speak, dress and act as 19th century women.

Tickets cost £10, or £9 for friends and benefactors, and admission includes a glass of wine or soft drink. Doors will open at 6:30pm, and the talk will begin at 7pm.

Tickets can be booked by calling 01386 859047 though some tickets may be available on the door.
