Step back through the centuries at the Geffrye Museum and take a glimpse into how Christmas has been celebrated in English middle-class homes over the past 400 years.
This annual event uses authentic festive decorations to transform the Geffrye Museum’s period rooms so that visitors can rediscover some of the rich and vibrant traditions of Christmas past; from feasting, dancing and kissing under the mistletoe to hanging up stockings, decorating the tree and throwing cocktail parties.
A full programme of events accompanies the exhibition.
