Christmas PastEach year the Geffrye Museum celebrates Christmas with a look at the way Christmas traditions have evolved over years at its annual Christmas Past exhibition, staged at the Shoreditch museum for over 20 years. It's a timely opportunity to see the museum's period rooms decorated to reflect our changing tastes at this festive time of year. There's a programme of events, workshops and family activities which tie in with the festive theme where you can create your own Christmas decorations, take in a talk on the ghosts of Christmas past and enjoy the carols by candlelight. On the final day, on Sunday 6th January 2013, you can bid farewell to Christmas with the traditional burning of the holly and the ivy.

 

About Geffrye Museum

There aren't many museums that can have William Morris and Ikea under the same roof, but the Geffyre is one of them. The focus of this quirky museum is the changing style of English domestic interior, from the 1600s to the present. More about Geffrye Museum
