Christmas at the Old Treasury

Visit the Old Treasury Building’s annual Christmas display from the 1920s and immerse yourself in a time gone by.

By the 1920s there were quite sophisticated Christmas decorations for sale in the shops, but most people could not afford them. These are the kinds of decorations they made instead. Newspapers of the time printed designs and patterns for cheerful decorations which could be made at home using readily available materials. As a reminder of times past, the Old Treasury Building has used these patterns to recreate a homely Christmas in the caretakers’ basement flat. They will also share some old recipes for Christmas food.

You will recognise some things, but others will be an eye opener.
