Celebrating Christmas in Victorian style

Some of Gwynedd’s primary school children will have the wonderful opportunity to see for themselves how the Victorians used to celebrate Christmas. A Victorian Christmas

The Highgate Cottage and the Lloyd George Museum at Llanystumdwy will be the location for the fun activities held for primary school from 3 to 14 December. The children will have a chance to wear clothes from the era and to prepare for a traditional Christmas.

Councillor Roy Owen, Life Long Learning Portfolio Leader on Gwynedd Council said:

“This is a great chance for primary school children to learn about the past, and to find out for themselves how people in Victorian times celebrated Christmas. There will be a unique chance to go back in time over a century and celebrate Christmas as children would have done, wearing the clothes of the time and taking part in a variety of activities. I’m sure the children will have tremendous fun.”

This year, artists, Delyth Gordon and Gwawr Roberts will make traditional Christmas cards, with the children having their chance to create their own cards.
