Victorian Christmas

Blists Hill Victorian Town

10 Dec 2016 – 11 Dec 2016

Experience the magic of a Victorian Christmas with family and friends at Blists Hill Victorian Town.

Make this Christmas extra special and visit Blists Hill Victorian Town with friends and family over the two weekends of 3 - 4 and 10 - 11 December.  Soak up the fabulous seasonal Victorian atmosphere and revel in traditional celebrations and entertainment as the townsfolk busily make preparations for Christmas, 1800s style.

Be transported to a bygone era as you stroll around the town; listen to tales of life more than 100 years ago as you call-in to cosy cottages, hum along to seasonal music from brass bands and choirs and tour the Town on a horse-drawn cart. No visit will be complete without a visit to see Father Christmas in his wonderful grotto. You can even pet his reindeer before they start their mammoth journey around the world on Christmas Eve.

The most perfect Victorian ‘Christmas card scene’, with a stunningly decorated Christmas tree, will be the centrepiece in the Goods Shed where you can also make paperchains, write a letter to Father Christmas and leave a note on our Wishing Tree.

The air will be filled with music and laughter around the Town with brass bands, carol singers and Punch & Judy shows. Don’t miss the dastardly villain, his principal enemy and the comical quack doctor, all dressed in garish garb in our traditional Shropshire Christmas Mummers Play. The Victorians loved these early forms of panto, and so will you.

A visit will be a great excuse to call in to the shops around the Town, where you will find some unusual Christmas gifts like traditionally made cast-iron paperweights and doorstops, handmade plaster decorations, perfumed soaps, hand printed gift wrap, traditional sweets and Victorian Christmas cards.
