It is 1519 – The King’s Room at Christmas

In December, we hope to transport parts of the museum back to Tudor Times.

The King’s Room will be laid for a ‘banquet’. There will be birds of prey, costume, music, story-telling, a celebrity, mulled beverages, real food – and reindeer.


Last year we had a wonderful response to our request for hoards-themed decorations for our Christmas tree at St Thomas’ Church. This year we hope you will help us decorate the museum!

We will be holding sewing ‘bees’, foliage arrangement workshops and craft sessions in the museum (dates to be announced). Come and enjoy company, trying new skills, or resurrecting old ones. Tea, coffee and biscuits supplied.

If you prefer, work from home using templates and instructions which we will supply, or come up with your own ideas and designs, using genuine Tudor themes.

Learn more at a brief introduction following the Collections in Focus talk on 17 September, or read the Volunteer blog on the museum website for updates. More posters with further news will also be displayed in the Volunteer cloakroom and rest room.
