Come experience the traditions of Christmas as enjoyed by Queen Victoria’s soldiers and their families. See how the troops celebrated the season in the barracks and in the field, enjoy a soldier’s version of Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol,” meet Father Christmas, find out what a 19th century Christmas tree looked like, and let the Schoolmaster entertain you with a seasonal Magic Lantern show. There will be a parade with Father Christmas, and plenty of guest performers including choirs, musicians, and dancers, with performances in both the chilly winter air and in the warmth of a casemate. Children will enjoy Victorian games and a visit to the craft room, where they can create a souvenir of their glimpse of a bygone era. 12-4pm both days.
