Victorian Christmas

Have your say

TRADITIONAL Christmas activities and entertainments will be helping Strutt’s North Mill step back in time for one evening.

The museum at Belper will open for Victorian-style festivities on Saturday, December 10 (4pm-6.30pm).

You can make your own Christmas decorations, hear carol singers and join in games from yesteryear.

Mill museum manager Natascha Wintersinger said: “Next year it will be 180 years since Queen Victoria came to look at Belper’s mills, when she was a 13-year-old princess. So it seems highly appropriate to enjoy a traditional Christmas evening like those Belper would have seen in her time.”

Admission is £4 for adults, children get in free.
