Christmas with Steptoe & Son

Christmas simply wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to 26 Oil Drum Lane to catch up with the nation’s favourite rag-and-bone-men and indulge in some classic, festive misadventures!

Albert and Harold – united by blood, divided over everything else – seem doomed to spend Christmas in each other’s company. But Harold has his flights of fancy… including a flight he fancies abroad or to throw the biggest Christmas party London’s ever had to offer!  Albert, of course, has other ideas… Who wouldn’t want to spend Christmas as Mrs. Clifford’s B&B in Bognor Regis anyway??

Tickets are £8 in advance or £10 otd but don’t take the chance and end up disappointed – book your seats now on 01652 635172!

Dickensian Extravaganza

Experience a flavour of Christmas as it would have felt when Charles Dickens was writing A Christmas Carol.

We’ve shaped his words to create a “novel” interpretation of  some of his great works including Nicholas Nickleby and David Copperfield.  It’s open between 11am and 3pm.

Admission charge: £5 adults; £2.50 children; £12.50 Family Ticket (two adults and two or more children).  No need to book.  Usual museum opening times: Thursdays – Sundays only.

 The Old School Canteen coffee shop is open 10am-4pm as always.

Barton Christmas Festival

We are preparing for the Barton Christmas Festival on Saturday 24 November and our Dickensian Christmas (from 29 November) so the Wilderspin Infants Schoolroom will be getting a seasonal facelift which will change its historical authenticity!  If you were planning to visit Samuel Wilderspin’s Model Infant Schoolroom we would advise you to visit another time – it will be back to “normal” from Thursday 20 December.

But come along also to our Victorian Christmas Fair on 24 November between 11am and 4pm featuring an indoor Christmas Market, seasonal refreshments in the Old School Canteen and Barton’s only truly Victorian Father Christmas in his Gallery Grotto!
