Lancaster's Judges' Lodgings Museum will be open for "A Victorian Christmas Festival" this coming weekend (6th - 7th December 2014).

The Lodgings - home to the town's Toy Museum on its upper floor - will be decked with holly and filled with cheer so visitors can soak in the sights and smells of a Victorian Christmas.

There will be activities for the whole family to join in with. Enjoy making a pot-pourri Christmas pudding while you listen to the story of Victorian Christmas traditions and get creative making Victorian Christmas decorations.

There will also be carol singing and bell ringing to entertain visitors so come along and join in with our festive entertainments and enjoy the merriest of Yuletides.

Please note that there is no lift in the building, therefore some workshops and rooms are only accessible by the stairs. Bell ringers, Carol singers and Christmas pudding workshop will all take place on the ground floor.
