As the festive season approaches, the Old House Museum is getting ready to warmly welcome visitors to this beautiful Tudor house ‘Dressed for Christmas’.
On Saturday 12th and Sunday the 13th December 11am – 4pm you will be able to wander round the award-winning museum and see its huge and varied collection of items but, in addition, the atmospheric old house will be dressed for Christmas with greenery, pine cones, ivy wreathes.  The smell of the green decoration combined with cinnamon, cloves and oranges.  A delight for the eyes and nose. 

A FREE SHUTTLE BUS from outside the Bakewell Co-op store (opposite Boots) on Saturday only at 10.45 – 3pm will help you save energy to enjoy the entertainment on offer. There will be choirs on both days at 11.30,  guided walks to Bakewell Town throughout the weekend and festive Dickens readings, poetry and prose throughout the two days.  Craft activities and trails will keep the children entertained and why not treat yourself to mulled wine, mince pies, cookies or hot chocolate

Combine your visit with the spectacular Festival of Trees at the Parish Church, just across the road from the museum.  

Anita Spencer, museum manager, said “This atmospheric old building with beamed rooms and massive open fireplaces lends itself so well to events.  Preparations are well underway and we are all getting quite excited to be opening our doors at this special time of year”
Adults £4, Child £2, Family £11.50, Guided walks £3.
