Museum of the home in Hackney prepares for its annual celebration of London’s festive past.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - November 6th, 2013 - As London prepares to wrap itself in tinsel and baubles for another activity-packed Christmas, one of the season’s most popular events returns to the Geffrye Museum in Hackney. Christmas Past takes place between 26th November and 5th January at this popular museum in east London, which is devoted to the evolution of the British home since the 1500s. Information about this and other London events can be found at LondonTown.com, the London website that is also dedicated to discovering the best and latest deals on hotel rooms in London.

Christmas Past takes place every year at the Geffrye. It sees authentic Christmas decorations transform the Geffrye Museum’s period living rooms – each room is furnished to reflect a different time in British history and the appropriate decorations give visitors a magical glimpse into how Christmas has been celebrated in English middle-class homes over the past 400 years. The exhibition allows you to step back in time through the centuries to discover the origins and developments of many of the rich and vibrant traditions from Christmas in the past, from Christmas lunch, kissing under the mistletoe, parlour games, stockings, Christmas cards, tree decoration and cocktail parties.

The Christmas Past exhibition will be accompanied by a full programme of events, such as An Edwardian Christmas, which will reproduce a candle-lit Christmas from the Edwardian era, a concert by candlelight and a family day, featuring decoration making and carol singing. Throughout Christmas, seasons food will be serve in the restaurant and the shop will specialise in gifts, decorations and cards for those looking to return home with a Christmas treat. LondonTown.com contains information about many other such seasonal events taking place in London this Christmas, making it as essential a part of the London Christmas experience as the Geffrye’s much-loved annual exhibition.
