A Victorian Christmas comes to Sudley House this December

30/11/2021

Step back in time with a weekend of Victorian festive fun at Sudley House in South Liverpool

Sudley House, the hidden gem of south Liverpool, is taking visitors back in time for a weekend of Victorian festivities – giving a sense of how Christmas may have been enjoyed by previous inhabitants of the house.

Set across two days – 4 and 5 December – visitors will get the chance to meet the Victorian housekeeper of Sudley House (who thinks you’re there to work below stairs!), as well as the Estate Manager who will share stories about life in the Victorian merchants home. 

The tasteful interiors of Sudley House will also be filled with the sound of traditional Christmas Carols, as well as Victorian party dances courtesy of the Galliard Folk Dancers. Younger visitors can expect Christmas crafting, Victorian decoration making, and even the chance to handle some replica toys from the Victorian era. With a nod to the great Victorian Christmas novel A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, there will also be some spooky, festive ghost stories.

The Victorian Christmas continues the anniversary celebrations of Sudley House, which marked its 200th anniversary in 2021. Pauline Rushton, Head of Sudley House, said: “Christmas is such a special time here at Sudley – our noted art collection and Aesthetic movement interiors really come into their own alongside traditional Victorian Christmas decorations.”

“Sudley House is a real hidden gem in Mossley Hill – the house has a rich history, with the paintings on display being by some of the finest artists of the time and they now form the only surviving, intact collection of artworks once owned by a merchant family. We hope visitors are able to enjoy a family friendly day of fun in peaceful, meditative surroundings.”

A Victorian Christmas at Sudley House runs at Sudley House on 4 and 5 December. This is a free, drop-in event on a first come first serve basis. Find out more information on the event on the website HERE.
