The Victorian Christmas was a joyous time with family at the heart of the celebrations. Totara Estate plans to capture the magic of times gone by with an afternoon filled with crafts, stories, games, music and more.

Christmas trees and evergreen decorations adorned Victorian homes with beautiful homemade decorations. Visitors can see the Totara tree and will be shown how to make their own decorations.

On Christmas Day all family members would take a turn at telling a story or reading a poem and games would be played. Totara will have a story corner with traditional tales and will be reviving some good old fashioned parlour games for everyone to join in.

All good Victorian Christmas parties involved listening to festive music and enjoying some tasty fare and both will be on offer during the afternoon.

A certain bearded gentleman will be dropping in – in Victorian times his robes were often green rather than the red we know today.

The celebrations will progress through the afternoon so plan to arrive promptly to enjoy the full experience. Victorian party dress welcome – but not essential!

The delightful Totara Estate shop, with its heritage and rural theme, will be open if visitors wish to find some Christmas gifts.
