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.
