Children from across Weston-super-Mare paid homage to the town’s Victorian history with a Christmas event at the museum this week.

Weston Museum, in Burlington Street, hosted a Victorian Christmas which featured crafts, games and a visit from Father Christmas himself.

Children were tasked with completing a festive trail through the museum to find Santa, dressed in traditional Victorian clothes.

But the fun did not stop there, the museum staff taught the youngsters how to make snowflakes and decorations in the museum’s learning and activity space.

Learning and events officer Katherine Bell said: “We traded in our annual craft fair for something low key this year and it was very busy throughout which was very good.”

The museum will be closed from January 8-26 to prepare its next exhibit. There will be a reopening ceremony on January 27.
