If you’ve done all your Christmas shopping or need a break from the crowds how about taking the family along to this festive event at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent? A Victorian Christmas Enchantment takes place this Mon. 19 Dec., 11am to 3.30pm. It is Christmas Eve in 1890 and Clarissa, a Victorian lady, has just returned from her busy Christmas shopping just in time before the children arrive home.
The tree is decorated and everything is ready for Christmas. She shares with the audience about the day in the town and the gifts she has brought. Each gift has a story to tell, and there will be many stories and enchantments to be revealed, full of magic and delicately woven together in a special Christmas tapestry.
After the storytelling the audience will be able to participate in traditional Victorian parlour games and dancing and even sing a carol or two. Children will also be able to make Nutcracker Soldiers and Christmas Angels to take home and have their faces painted with festive deigns. Small charge for the face painting and craft activities.
This charming event promises to give everyone a memorable Victorian Christmas experience to take away with them full of magic and enchantment for children and all the family.
