This December, join us for our Victorian Justice Weekend with a festive twist! This immersive event will bring to life the heritage of the Museum’s Victorian buildings and courtyard space through historic re-enactments, costumed interpretation, storytelling and Victorian themed arts and crafts. There will also be carols in the courtyard and a visit from Father Christmas to get everyone into the festive spirit!

Events will run between 11:00-15:00 on both days of the Victorian Justice Weekend. The Museum will be open between 10:00-17:00 (Saturday) and 11:00-16:00 (Sunday) for general admission.
