About the event

Each year, authentic festive decorations, lighting, music and greenery transform the Geffrye’s period rooms, giving visitors an evocative insight into how Christmas has been celebrated in middle-class homes in England over the past 400 years. Step back through the centuries and discover the origins and meanings of some of the rich and vibrant traditions of Christmas past, from feasting, dancing and kissing under the mistletoe to playing parlour games, hanging up stockings, sending cards, decorating the tree and throwing cocktail parties.

Related events will include Christmas fairs, special late nights, carol concerts, and Christmas decoration and greenery workshops. Seasonal food and drink will be on the menu in the café and the shop will be full of Christmas decorations and cards, stylish home-wares, gifts and treats.
