The Victorian Christmas Kitchen Educational Visit provides a fascinating insight into the lives of men, women and children at various levels of society and the differences in status between the family and their staff.
This visit gives children and accompanying adults the opportunity to come and experience life in a Victorian Kitchen at Christmas. They will be able to help the servants prepare the house for the festive season by making pomanders, Christmas decorations, and Christmas sweets. But they mustn't forget that all the everyday jobs will also need doing such as washing and preparing the dinner!
The session lasts from 10am until 2pm.
When you arrive please ring the bell at the front door and then give to our staff a list of names of children and adults attending. Our staff will then lead the prospective 'servants' to the kitchen area.
To ensure your place is booked with us; first check the availability with the Learning Supervisor, Joanne Mair. Once you have made a provisional booking and completed and returned the booking form to Cannon Hall we will confirm your place.
