THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 3RD JANUARY 2016
Each 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. Typically there's a programme of events and family activities which tie in with the chosen theme where you can create your own Christmas decorations, sip on mulled wine while witnessing the traditional burning of the holly and the ivy, and enjoy the carols by candlelight.
