Head to Osborne on Sat 30 November or Sun 1 December 2019 to enjoy the merriment of Christmas in Victorian times. Experience the season of good cheer with fun and festivities for all the family. Grab a song sheet and sing along whilst you warm up with a glass of mulled wine. You can seek out Father Christmas in his magical grotto and listen to his yuletide tales or huddle round to enjoy the Victorian tradition of Christmas ghost stories.
Visit the Victorian fairground and take a ride on the swingboats and carousel. See the amazing Addrian and his travelling flea circus or stop by Captain Griffin's fairground stalls for a chance to enjoy traditional games. Young visitors will be captivated by the Victorian toy-makers, and can even make their very own toy to take home.
Be sure to visit Father Christmas as he settles in to his weekend home. Join an audience with the man himself as he tells yuletide tales surrounded by festive decorations of Osborne House.
To cap it all, the Christmas courtyard will be bustling with stallholders and carol singers.
Victorian Christmas continues after dark as the festivities carry on into the evening. A fully festive day that shouldn't be missed.
