About The Event
Experience the Christmas season at Agecroft Hall from three different eras: England in 1640, London in 1860, and Richmond in 1942. Charles Dickens will do a lively reading from his classic A Christmas Carol. Father Christmas will be ready to hear your Christmas wishes. You'll meet characters from England during the time of Dickens, and help them put up decorations and join them for a period parlor games. The Williamsburg Waites will gladden your heart with Victorian carols and dances. Inside the house, you'll be introduced to the family and servants that lived at Agecroft in Elizabethan England as they prepare for a holiday feast. You'll see a Christmas party held in support of service men and women during World War II, and Pamela Bomboy will be telling stories of that period. Also back is Signora Bella performing her daring acrobatics with roaring good humor! The More or less Morris Dancers will perform, and craft activities are planned. It's outside and inside, so be sure to bundle up!
