Take a step into the past and experience the Yuletide of Yesterday with a nostalgic Noel at these special historic Christmas events. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas in bygone times. The everyday realities as costumed characters prepare for festivities the old fashioned way. From the 1800’s to the 1930’s – you might even recall some of these traditional celebrations yourself: Brass bands, Carol singers, festive recipes and even a classic Christmas film to enjoy.  Happy days!

ITINERARY


Saturday - Morning departure from Dorset to The Black Country Museum at Dudley which features a "Christmas in the Home" weekend - experience some domestic bliss in the period cottages for a magical Christmas past.
